Cheers to 15 Years

Cheers to 15 Years

Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle was founded in 2006.
At that time, a group of local women philanthropists came together to establish the organization and encourage other women to join in philanthropic giving. Their early efforts were focused on helping in the local community, reaching and assisting women, children, and their families in need. For 15 years, Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle has been accomplishing that objective and continues to develop women's philanthropy and meet needs through fundraising and grant making.
Gather to celebrate 15 years of Giving Hope!
The event will include:
-Gift Gathering for the Bottomless Toy Chest
-short business meeting
-pinning ceremony for members

Tickets are $35 and include plentiful appetizers and a champagne toast. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
