Legacy Luncheon

Our Legacy Luncheon is our largest annual fundraising event of the year, raising critical funds while bringing special attention to individuals who have taken great strides to extend the YWCA mission into our community. We thank our supporters for pivoting with us as we shifted this year’s luncheon program to a virtual event format.
