100% of the donations collected at this event will be donated to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) for their cancer patients.

Ms. Zinnur Güvenç and Mrs. Arzu Koçyiğit rejoined the BOD after a couple of years of break! Incumbent BOD members Mrs. Arzu Şimşek and Secretary Aydan Atrek were reelected. Congratulations to all…

The new President of TALL for 2017/2018 years is Zinnur Güvenç. We will take TALL to new heights under her presidency. Welcome back dear friend!

As the members of the TALL Board of Directors, we would like to take this opportunity one more time to thank all our guests in attendance for their unconditional support, and Çağla Başar for her presentation.

Look forward to seeing everyone at our next event…
