While the tables at the Red Lion Hotel Paper Valley in Appleton will be empty this year, the virtual tables at this year’s Women’s Luncheon will be full!
By Julie Keller, Executive Director, Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region
The Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region is excited to celebrate the 20th annual Women’s Fund Luncheon with you on September 10, only from a distance this year.
The luncheon has always been a day to remember, and it’s essential for raising funds to sustain the critical work of the Women’s Fund. This year is no different, except we are bringing the luncheon to you.
Many of you have attended the luncheon with friends, family, and colleagues – some for 19 years! You’ve been awed and inspired by women stepping out and breaking barriers. You have laughed, cried, and taken action. And collectively, you’ve shown your support by donating, advocating, and volunteering to advance opportunities for women and girls in our community.
We know that no matter how we come together, our strength is unstoppable! Your annual attendance and support fuel the Women’s Fund grantmaking, advocacy and education efforts that are critical to the economic recovery and reshaping a future where women and girls of every background thrive.
We’re excited to welcome Johanna Garton, Appleton native and author, as our featured speaker at the Women’s Fund Virtual Luncheon. Johanna’s newly released book, Edge of the Map, tells the story of Christine Boskoff, another Appleton native who broke barriers and climbed to the height of success.
Get your signed copy of Edge of the Map for $25 from johannagarton.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Women’s Fund when you indicate that you heard about the book through the Women’s Fund Luncheon in the “Additional Information” section.
Now more than ever, women and girls need you at the table. Wherever that table happens to be, join us virtually on September 10 for the luncheon of a lifetime!
