Women of the Valley

I was one of about 1,000 people who attended the annual Women’s Fund Luncheon Thursday at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton—mostly women and a few good men. It was the 10th anniversary of this luncheon sponsored by the Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region, Inc. This organization has accomplished so much over the last decade in support of their mission of “investing in women and girls through grants, advocacy, and education.” Some of our own students and programs have benefited from the generosity of the Women’s Fund over the years.

Women of the Fox Valley Region are simply amazing. They show up in droves for this great annual event and bring with them incredible energy matched by such dedication to making our communities a vibrant place to live and work. It’s always a fun and inspirational event and I was so pleased to have some of our staff, trustees and guests of our Foundation there to represent Fox Valley Technical College.

Join me in making a difference in addressing the issues facing women and girls in our community. Check out their web site at www.womensfundfvr.org.
