Asante Africa Foundation would not be successful without its core team of devoted volunteers who give their time to support Asante Africa’s cause. As we grow, many of our exemplary volunteers have grown with us. One such volunteer has gone beyond the call of duty to make our fundraising celebration a success! This year we are proud to recognize our Auction Goddess, Miranda Newman.
Miranda joined the Asante Africa team in January of 2010. She began taking part in facilitating the auction items along side our Team Leader for Auctions. Since then, Miranda has taken on several other projects within the organization, where her unmatched skills and reliability has been an asset.
Last November, Asante Africa Foundation held our 3rd annual Fall Fundraising Celebration, “Escape to Zanzibar”. Miranda’s leadership with the auction team turned months of hard work into one of our most successful fundraisers to date! Her devotion to making sure that everything was to perfection was evident by her presence from 8am on the morning of the event, to the close of the doors that night.
“Miranda is not only a person and volunteer you can always count on, but she brings so much joy and laughter to our team which is a large part of our continued success.” —Angela Hilsenbeck, Event Manager
Simultaneously juggling a full-time job outside of Asante Africa, Miranda’s hard work and passion is truly an inspiration! There is really only one phrase that best describes Miranda… Goddess of Auctions. Asante Africa Foundation is grateful to have Miranda on the team and be a part of the Asante Family!
