This last year fund raising efforts were very successful. Several lines of raising funds were utilized. As in the past individuals gave to The Foundation when they renewed their memberships and as in the past members were very generous. The foundation also received a sizable contribution from a state society that dissolved its incorporation.
This year the committee discontinued the annual meeting silent auction as it has been dwindling in interest and funding, and instead used a revenue sharing venture between AAPB and FERB during Riverboat Jamboree onboard the Cajun Queen. The Jamboree was held on Saturday evening. FERB offered the opportunity for sponsorship and four sponsors helped fund the event. They were Tom and Terri Corulla of Brainmaster, Steven Sterns of Stens Corporation, Larry Klein and Hal Meyers of Thought Technology, and The Florida Biofeedback Society. In addition to the sponsorships many individuals chose to help support FERB’s funding efforts by giving individually during the cruise.

The weather was perfect for the cruise, and all enjoyed the food along with the New Orleans styled music. During the cruise FERB received its most generous individual contribution to date from Scheherazade Shamsavari Ph.D., ATR. At the New Orleans meeting FERB also received a very generous contribution from Fran Butler in memory of the late Thomas Budzynski.
