FOUNDATION & BOARD MEMBERS

MEET THE FOUNDATION TEAM

The team at Frankie Lemmon Foundation provides essential support for the school, and we would not be here without them.

MARSHA HARGETTE

My Story

North Carolina native and graduate of North Carolina State University. Shortly after graduation I entered AmeriCorps as a VISTA and served for a year in Seattle working in an inner-city school building a literacy and volunteer program. From there I was hooked and have spent my entire career working in nonprofits focusing primarily on fundraising through events, annual and capital campaigns, and grant writing. I am a proud mom of two amazing kids, Liam (10) and Parker (7).

My Impact

I am thrilled to work beside so many people who are committed to seeing little ones, with and without disabilities, reach their full potential. It’s truly an honor and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Frankie Lemmon School and the Foundation.

TIFFANY BOGGS LANGHI

Triangle Wine Experience Director

My Story

Virginia native and graduate of North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. Following a number of years spent working in the legal arena and software industry, I began my journey in the wine world in 1999. It has been a pleasure working with wine pioneers whose efforts helped raise the bar for all American winemakers and brought California to the forefront of the international wine community. Many great things happened for me in 2010 – the marriage to my husband, Joe Langhi, in February and the position at the Frankie Lemmon Foundation in July.

My Impact

Committed to the production of excellence, I am honored to organize and preserve the Triangle Wine Experience annual wine and food event, which continues to raise over a million dollars each year for the children of the Frankie Lemmon School.

My Story

I am a former Senior Executive with Accenture, who has turned his passion for wine collecting into a career helping others. I was born in Nicaragua and am bilingual in both English and Spanish. I studied at Davidson College and have lived in North Carolina for the past 32 years.

My Impact

I remain committed to improving TWE into a leading charity wine auction in the country.  During my tenure, we implemented mobile bidding and raised revenues from $1.4 million to $2.3 million.

My Story

Native North Carolinian, born in Dunn and have lived in Raleigh most of my life. I began my professional career in Nursing and after 10 years, joined the Presidential Advance teams of both Bob & Elizabeth Dole, followed by my own political foray into politics by two runs for the NC Legislature.

My Impact

All this prepared me for a treasured opportunity to direct the work of the Frankie Lemmon Foundation (FLF), which is the FUNdraising arm of the Frankie Lemmon School (FLS). My fundraising teeth were cut in the political arena, but my heart remains tied to the critical work done for the children and families of FLS.
