At The Fund for Women and Girls, we’re on a mission to empower girls and women in Fairfield County and help them reach their full potential.
When you help a woman, you help her children, extended family, community and society. Our annual luncheon is a celebration of making a difference for women and girls throughout Fairfield County.
This highly-anticipated annual event attracts more than 800 enthusiastic friends and supporters from Connecticut, New York and even California.
They celebrate making an important difference for thousands of women and girls throughout Fairfield County, learn about the fund’s work, and hear from women who have benefitted from their support.
Keynote speakers have included the late Dr. Maya Angelou, Dr. Madeline Albright, Soledad O’Brien, Barbara Ehrenreich, Gail Collins, and Gloria Steinem.
This year’s luncheon is April 9, 2015 with keynote speaker Academy Award-winning actor and philanthropist Geena Davis.
The luncheon is The Fund for Women and Girls’ single fundraising event.
This year: have lunch with Geena Davis, and make a difference for women and girls in Fairfield County.
