“I have had the pleasure of working with Loretta as both a donor and volunteer for Defiance College. She has been a member of the Presidential Circle of donors since its creation in 2006. Additionally, Loretta has given her time by sharing her professional skills with Defiance College students and staff. With the creation of the Elegant Way Foundation Loretta has taken her philanthropy to a new level.”


Gail Kleinert – Executive Director at Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County (Former Executive Director, American Lung Association Southeast Chapter)

“We had the absolute pleasure of working with Loretta when she’d offered her services as Chairman of an important fundraising event for the American Lung Association, and also as integral member of the organization’s gala board. As a volunteer, Ms. Neff demonstrated total commitment, laser-like focus, attention to detail, and determination to achieve financial success for the events with which she was involved. She worked well with our staff, was totally self-motivated, and paid acute mindfulness in regard to budgets. We are delighted to recommend Loretta without hesitation. Clearly, she will bring all these assets to bear in whatever she does.”


Jody Kotler – Former Special Events Director at Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

“It is my pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Loretta Neff. Loretta was a distinguished honoree selected for an event that honored outstanding business professionals that excelled in business and gave back to the community. Loretta was the perfect candidate for this honor. As an honoree, she was one of the top producers for the fundraising event and far exceeded all expectations. She did an outstanding job for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and we were so pleased to have her as an honoree for the event.”
