Join us on May 8, 2014 at Walnut Hills Country Club from 6:30 – 8:30 pm for our signature event! Emceed by Kelly Rossman-McKinney and a keynote address by Judi Brown Clarke should be enough to get you there BUT THERE’S MORE! This is the only event where you, our generous and awesome supporters, will hear directly from our clients and interns what their experience has been at the Women’s Center. Bring tissues because you will definitely be moved by their stories. Kelly and Judi might make you laugh until you cry so there will be more than one use for hankies.
We also give out the Tribute to Women Award. This is a prestigious award given out to women who have overcome barriers in their chosen profession; served as a mentor for other women; and are leaders in this community. The nominees for this year’s award are:
Susan Lupo, Shenetra Moses, Traci Ruiz, Dawn Smith, Rev Sameerah Shareef, Emily Weigel.
Sponsors for this event include: The MI Department of Transportation (Pat Collins), The Billingslea Family In Memory of Ms. Adella “Mother Dear” Smith, and Upstream Investment Partners.
We will again silent auction the centerpieces. There will be submissions from local garden clubs, florists, local artists and potters, and other really cool stuff.
