Marj Halperin's Table
On Thursday, September 22, I will join nearly 2,100 women and men at Chicago Foundation for Women’s 31st Annual Luncheon and Symposium, to be held at the Hyatt Regency, 151 E. Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago. This year's Annual Luncheon features Dr. Anne Marie Slaughter, CEO of the New America Foundation, foreign policy expert and former senior advisor to Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Dr. Slaughter is best known for her controversial article, "Why Women Still Can’t Have it All."
Our contributions help CFW support a wide range of women and girl serving non-profit organizations through grants, capacity building seminars, advocacy and public education. To date CFW has given more than 3,000 grants totaling nearly $28 million dollars.
My goal is to host a table of 10 or more women AND men who believe that when you support women and girls, whole communities thrive. Please purchase a $150.00 ticket to this inspiring event today and join my table as part of this city-wide movement to improve the lives of women and girls.
If you are unable to attend, you can still make a contribution.
