Women's Luncheon 2016

  

We are excited to announce that Sybrina Fulton will be our Keynote Speaker and special guest at the 2016 YWCA Women’s Luncheon on Thursday, April 28th at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center. With a commitment to ending violence towards children and building safer communities for all, Sybrina’s message promises to leave a lasting impact for those who attend. Despite the intense struggle of losing a child, Sybrina has chosen to dedicate her life to transforming her family tragedy into positive social change.

Her message not only appeals to people’s hearts as it relates to children, but is also one of hope and change, exemplified by her personal experiences and endeavors. As a mother, she inspires audiences to continuously educate their children about civil rights and to help them feel accepted as part of an ever changing society. 

For over 20 years, El Pasoans 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, 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 attendance has surpassed 2,000.
