The Women's Fund Luncheon is the premier women's event in the Fox Valley. Join us for lunch, laughter, inspiration and support of local women and girls.
Our featured speaker is Rachel Lloyd. In 1998, at just 23 years old, Rachel founded Girls Educational and Mentoring Services (GEMS). Sixteen years later, her indelible impact on the issue of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking has helped shift the perception of trafficked girls from criminals to victims and now to survivors and leaders. Rachel co-produced the ground-breaking Showtime documentary Very Young Girls, is the author of the critically acclaimed Girls Like Us, and has used her unique voice to advocate for survivors at the White House, the United Nations, and before Congress. To learn more about Rachel and her work, click here.
Proceeds from the Women's Fund Luncheon support our mission to invest in women and girls through grants, advocacy and education.
Pricing for the luncheon is $500 per table of 10 seats or $50 for each individual seat.
