The 4th Annual Girlfriends Gather event will be held on Thursday, May 12th at the Elson S. Floyd Center in Pullman, WA from 6-7:30 pm.
Nominate your favorite non-profit serving women's and children's health and wellness needs with a $100 donation. One local non-profit will go home with all the funds raised!
Together, with our friends in the community, the Women’s Leadership Guild has donated over $30,000 to local non-profits serving women’s and children’s health and wellness needs through the fast-paced and exciting Girlfriends Gather event. Each attendee will nominate a non-profit agency (or agencies—yes, you can nominate more than one!) to receive the proceeds from the evening. With a goal of 100 women attending, that would mean one local non-profit agency will receive $10,000 or more! Register below:
Since 2015, the Women’s Leadership Guild has been building a tribe of passionate, take-action, community-focused women who want to empower women and children to live better, healthier lives. Through membership contributions and networking events, the guild awards grants to regional non-profits who provide shelter to homeless families, food to children in need, care for the aging and disabled, and support to grieving and orphaned children. Since 2015, the Women's Leadership Guild has successfully raised more than $240,000 in funds to support local non-profits and the hospital's highest needs. Join us! We want you to experience the joy of helping women and children.
