    Following the success of previous collections, The Women's Fund collected items at this luncheon to benefit local women and children in domestic violence shelters in the counties served by the fund. To participate, bring any of the following (new items only, please): skin and body care products -- including hotel and store sample sizes, make-up, razors, toothpaste, deodorant. Thank you!

    The group also participated in the International Women's Day 2019 campaign theme #BalanceforBetter to build a gender-balanced world by having pictures taken with the "hands out" balance pose.
