Join the YWCA El Paso del Norte Region on April 17, 2014 for the 21st anniversary of the Women's Luncheon. The event begins at 11:30am at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center with lunch.
As we continue in our second century of serving women and their families, we realize that our past success is a direct result of the generous support of our friends and supporters within the community. For 20 years, El Paso has come together to support the YWCA’s signature fundraising event. Funds raised in this single afternoon help support programs that invest in children, strengthen families in transition, build the community, and develop leadership activities in women and girls while helping them reach their full potential. In 1994, the inaugural YWCA Women’s Luncheon drew more than 600 El Pasoans. Over the years, support for the event has grown and we now host more than 2,000 guests. The formula set in motion all those years ago has grown to new heights and has proven to be a successful fundraising tool of which we are proud.
