BY LAUREN Y. CASTEEL
PRESIDENT AND CEO – THE WOMEN’S FOUNDATION OF COLORADO
On October 10, at Colorado Convention Center, more than 3,000 diverse Coloradans will come together to raise vital funds to support the economic advancement of Colorado women and their families.
The Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s Annual Luncheon is the state’s largest fundraiser focused on creating more pathways to prosperity for Colorado women. It is also a renowned showcase of inspirational icons and ideas that has featured past speakers such as Octavia Spencer, Misty Copeland, Geena Davis, America Ferrera, Jane Fonda, Geena Davis, and Soledad O’Brien.
The 2018 special guest is sports icon and activist Billie Jean King. As a world champion on the tennis court, a crusader for social justice and women’s equality in sports, and a visionary whose legacy is ever-evolving, Billie Jean King has secured her place in history.
She continues to make her mark today with the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative to address diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and as the subject of the 2017 film Battle of the Sexes that starred Academy Award® winner Emma Stone as King.
Join community and civic leaders, nonprofits, businesses, and individual donors who are passionate about accelerating economic opportunities for Colorado women by purchasing your tickets and tables today for this nonpartisan event. Visit www.wfco.org for more information.
