WIT-NC APPROVES SLAVE 2 NOTHING DONATION
Our December holiday event featured a speaker from Slave 2 Nothing, a non-profit organization supporting organizations that find solutions to eliminate human trafficking, as well as assisting individuals and their families who are healing from substance abuse. The WIT-NC Endowment Committee made a donation of $1,000 in January, matched by a $3,000 donation from In-N-Out Burger. In-N-Out pays all costs associated with Slave 2 Nothing so that all money raised goes directly to Slave 2 Nothing's primary mission goals.

CHINESE NEW YEAR & ANNUAL APAC UPDATE
WIT-NC would like to extend a BIG thank you to Baker McKenzie for speaking at our Chinese New Year event. Special thanks to partner John F. McKenzie and Hong Kong Partner Jon Cowley for their knowledgeable presentations. WIT-NC's Chinese New Year program is a perennial favorite and this year, with 95 attendees, was no exception.
