We are going big to celebrate women TrailblAZers for our 30th anniversary! Join us for our free, virtual luncheon event Friday, March 12 at 12 noon.

Presenting Sponsor

Our keynote will be a conversation on gender and racial equity between our CEO, Dr. Amalia Luxardo, and Lauren Casteel, President and CEO of The Women’s Foundation of Colorado.

And there’s more! We will honor an array of women leaders, and hear stories from women and girls who have been involved in our Unidas and Pathways programs. Musical entertainment will be provided by Miss Olivia and the Interlopers, voted Best R&B band of 2020 in the Tucson Weekly.

WFSA Luncheon 2021 will be streamed free so ALL can attend! However, it is our ONLY fundraising event of the year, so please consider making a gift in support of the luncheon or purchasing one of our 30th Anniversary VIP Swag bags. Your purchase of a VIP Swag bag supports WFSA’s work to empower women and girls, and supports fabulous local women-owned businesses BOCA Tacos Y Tequila, Queen Cuizine Meal Prep, Chef Chic Café, and Sand-Reckoner Vineyards.

Please note: In order to receive your VIP Swag bag by March 12, your order MUST be placed by March 5. Orders after March 5 will be delivered after the Luncheon. Coral, Silver and Turquoise VIP Swag bags ordered by March 5 will be delivered to your registration address by March 12.
