The Women’s Fund: Celebrating 12 years of supporting women-focused agencies
The annual Grant Awards Celebration “Empowering Women and Girls in CNY” is hosted by The Women’s Fund of Central New York and is an opportunity to honor organizations that empower women while providing them with the chance to meet and connect.
“There’s always a lot of energy and excitement around that,” Vice Chair of the Fund’s Governance Council Diana Gerrish said.
Since 2001, the Fund has awarded a total of 58 grants and contributed $114,720 to non-profit organizations seeking to enrich the lives of women and girls. This year’s recipients will be recognized on April 17 during a catered celebration at Drumlins Country Club.
For the price of a $50 ticket, attendees will receive a token for a free drink and can tour a showcase featuring the accomplishments of non-profits that have benefited from the grant in the past.
“It’s a time for people to see all of the different organizations empowering women and girls in Central New York,” Events Chair Lisa D. Miller said.
