We may not be able to gather at TCC for the annual luncheon, but we CAN get online together to celebrate the important work for women and girls in our community.

Join us LIVE online on April 28 at noon for a ‘Living Room Luncheon.’ Dress up or dress down, order lunch from a local woman-owned business if you can, and hear from our amazing lineup of speakers:

  • WFSA CEO Dr. Amalia Luxardo
  • UA Women’s Basketball Head Coach Adia Barnes
  • PICOR CEO Barbi Reuter
  • 2020 Honoree Pamela Grissom of Arizona List

When: Tuesday, April 28 at 12 Noon

Where: Right here on our website or Facebook page

Price:  The ‘Living Room Luncheon’ is free so people of every circumstance can attend. If you are able, please consider making a gift >>

An important message about our sponsors: Every single one of our sponsors generously donated their sponsorship fee even though we couldn’t follow through with our in-person luncheon. A lot of the recognition they receive for their sponsorship happens in-person on the day – so this was an incredibly generous gesture from all of them. Please join us in thanking them for supporting the work for women and girls in our community.

Thank you for celebrating 27 years of changing women's lives! In 2019, we awarded over $800,000 in grants that helped 63,500 women and girls increase their income and assets by nearly $5 million.
