Since attending my first Celebrating Women Breakfast as a grantee when I was Director of Development at Love Heals in 2008, I’ve been hooked on the incredible inspiring energy that comes from being in a ballroom packed to the brim with 2,000 powerful women and “a few good men”. The stories of trial and triumph from women and girls of all walks have had an impact on me that I struggle to find words to describe. That is why this year I’ve deepened my commitment to the New York Women’s Foundation by becoming a member of the 2012 Celebrating Women Breakfast Benefit Committee. On May 10th, my guests and I will help the Foundation honor Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Ai-jen Poo and Merble Reagon in a special 25th Anniversary Event.
