It’s time to make your reservations and mark your calendars! The 18th annual Resourceful Women’s Awards Luncheon presented by Groff NetWorks will be October 11th at the Hilton Garden Inn-Troy, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
The Resourceful Women’s Awards were established in 2000 to honor women whose community
and professional pursuits advance the empowerment of women, a core element of our mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
We will be honoring the 2017 Resourceful Woman of the Year, Anne Saile, Interim Director of The Hyde Collection and Founder & President of The Saile Group. Anne is an author, speaker and entrepreneur who is well known for her business acumen and organizational strategy work. Some of Anne’s greatest contributions to the Capital Region have been as a friend, mentor and champion of women leaders in our community and we cannot wait to celebrate her!
In addition to honoring Anne, we will recognize YWCA-GCR's 2017 Woman of Inspiration, 16 Resourceful Award Honorees and our Community Partners. In honor of the Centennial Celebration of Women's Suffrage in NYS we will recognize Phoebe AppersonHears, the late suffragist, philanthropist, feminist and education pioneer for women and girls.
We hope you will want to join us in supporting Anne and YWCA-GCR by getting involved right now! Our 2017 Resourceful Women’s Awards Luncheon fundraising goal is $100,000. All proceeds help to sustain, enhance, and expand the unique services and programs YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, Inc. provides. In addition to our economic empowerment, homelessness prevention, food security programs and services, every day, YWCA-GCR houses 104 women and over 50 children.
