The inaugural luncheon for the new Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge was held on Thursday, June 26th, at the Linville Ridge Clubhouse in Avery County.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and all who attended, the luncheon was a wonderful success. Together, we raised over $110,000 for the Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge. The fund will soon begin its grant process to redistribute funds to local non-profits that benefit women and girls.
The theme of the luncheon was “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” and 272 guests enjoyed the beautiful setting, fantastic silent and live auction items, and sharing a common goal of using philanthropy to better our community for our sisters in need.
