The Importance of This Event

This is WOMEN’S WAY's largest fundraising event of the year and is one of the most significant nonprofit events in our region. The event serves as an annual convening for engaged supporters to come together and focus on the status of women and girls – in their communities, homes, workplace, health, politics, and in the news. Because of funding from this important event, WOMEN’S WAY is in a unique position to tackle the region’s most pressing problems by leveraging funds that are put directly to work in the community in service of our mission to advance the status of women and girls and promote gender equality.
