The YWCA has been a powerful resource for local women and girls since 1883, serving more than 1,000 women and children each year. The YWCA helps women and girls who are faced with personal crises including homelessness and young adult pregnancy. The YWCA also works hard to dispel stereotypes and promote racial equity. As such, we ask that you please help support these women and children by bringing in a donated item when attending this event, such as can goods, diapers, children or women’s new clothing to this special LU/YWCA reception.

Our mingling with Sonia does not stop here! Join keynote speaker Sonia at the YWCA Empowering Women Luncheon on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, at 12:00 o,m. at the Joseph Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. The Empowering Women Luncheon is the YWCA’s major fundraising event of the year and is their most important opportunity to share their mission, vision, and accomplishments with the entire Rochester community. This event also raises awareness about the challenges faced by women and families who live in poverty and brings the community together to support these vulnerable families in their journey toward self-sufficiency. We hope you are able to attend this luncheon and support the women and families in our community!
