The Event:What makes our luncheon somewhat unique is of our 350 to 400 guests, we include approximately 150 of the girls and women who are participating in our Health Education classes to attend as our guest. Often this is the only opportunity they have to attend a luncheon like this or hear one of our fabulous guest speakers.

Education Session:  Our panelists and presenters are girls, women, boys and men who have inspiring stories of overcoming hardship, their approach to resiliency and their ultimate success on topics such as illness, injury and life altering events!  Each year approximately  100 girls, mentors, and mothers attend this 50 minute session before our luncheon begins.

Shopping Extravaganza:  Just in time for the holidays, we offer a shopping fair before and after the luncheon for all of our guests featuring a limited number of merchants.  Our vendors are asked to include items that are of interest to our adolescent girls as they all receive $20 in “shopping” money to spend that day thanks to the generosity of a sponsor each year!

Luncheon:  features a keynote speaker who shares an inspiring story of courage and perseverance as it focuses on resiliency!  Additionally, we now present our Sue Trammell Whitfield Award for Resiliency to a deserving individual who exudes Sue’s dedication, leadership and philanthropy to Girls and Women’s Health issues.
