El Paso del Norte Region

Women's Luncheon 2015


Thank you for, once again, supporting the YWCA in our efforts to provide opportunity to El Paso women and their families. We were able to share a wonderful afternoon with a room full of amazing women (and men!) who all coincide in their desire to help the less fortunate in our community. Thank you for making this, the 22nd Annual Women’s Luncheon, a success once more; and for supporting 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. We hope the experience was as unforgettable for you as it was for us…and we look forward to seeing you next year! 

 You can still donate to the YWCA Women's Luncheon!
