BENEFITING: Foundation for Women
The Foundation for Women's (FFW) 2012 Honoring the Women in Our Lives Annual Benefit Luncheon will be held at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla on September 28th at 11:00am. Guest speaker Phil Borges, UN Women Official Photographer, will give a special presentation titled, "Why Women? While Girls? - A Man's Perspective." Phil will also be available to sign Portraits of Progress, his most recent photo journal on the women of Liberia. You can pre-order your book by calling Cory Bridges at 858-483-0400.
The luncheon is an annual fundraiser that helps fund FFW's microloan and business education programs. The fundraiser also helps keep awareness on issues affecting women and girls and provides an opportunity for the FFW to express gratitude to all who work to advance the cause of women empowerment and gender equality.
The Foundation for Women provides small business loans and educational resources to industrious women living in poverty in San Diego and Liberia, enabling them to start and build their own microenterprises. These entrepreneurs are able to support themselves and their families -- eventually breaking the cycle of poverty.
