Women & Wishes has produced major annual signature events, along with monthly social gatherings to successfully generate funds and continued introduction for our cause. The attendees have responded enthusiastically to our organization’s mission, and the enjoyment and camaraderie they have experienced at our affairs are why our donors become loyal supporters. As a result, we have had a significant increase in our donor base and are excited about our continued growth. Here is a sampling of the events produced by Women & Wishes, as well as a new social idea, Gather & Give.
Our two annual signature events were an "Afternoon Tea" and an evening dinner, “Diamonds & Dudes.” Each event was created in excellence to provide superb culinary offerings, artistic flair, and upscale ambiance at prestigious venues. The annual events also offered desirable auction items which previously included helicopter rides, designer jewelry, autographed memorabilia and tickets to the Grammys.
This is not your traditional tea…hundreds joined us for an unusual respite from the everyday! Savoring epicurean delights, an array of teas, and a lively afternoon of socializing. This event was held in the fall.
Diamonds & Dudes
Our festive soirée honored a diverse group of philanthropic men who have actively impacted women and children of our community. Paired with their favorite chic attire and loads of diamonds, guests indulged their senses during a night of entertainment, dancing, libations and exceptional cuisine. No one wanted to miss this night that occured in spring!
This was not your cookie cutters' monthly gathering to raise funds! Each restaurant or venues' great ambiance, savory tastings along with our attendees wonderful conversation and productive networking made each social a knockout. Your $20 donation at the door included a cocktail, appetizers and a chance to buy raffle tickets for valuable prizes such as golf lessons, abundant gift baskets, or restaurant gift certificates.
