Susan Retik-Ger touched all of us with her courageous story at the Women's Leadership Forum. Together with the event attendees, The Ad Club, our sponsors, and volunteers helped raise over $4,000 for Susan's non-profit organization, Beyond the 11th, which provides support Afghan widows. Her commitment to this cause was born from her own journey into
widowhood — a journey that began on September 11, 2001, when her
husband David was killed on American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane to hit the World Trade Center.
