OK, the CFW luncheon is $150 a ticket, but it's an awesome event. If you can afford it or talk your boss into sending you (thank you bosses past & present!) then go. This year should be quite an event:
As Chicago Foundation for Women’s centerpiece event, the Annual Luncheon and Symposium draws more than 2,000 people each year. This year the Foundation is excited to welcome Denyce Graves, renowned mezzo-soprano and star of the opera Margaret Garner to its 23rd celebration of women and girls. For more information on our celebrated guest, click here to read a bio of Denyce Graves (PDF).
At the very least attend the morning symposium which is always educational in every feminista way possible!
This year’s symposium is The Art of Social Justice: How Creativity Complements Advocacy. The free morning program from 9-11 a.m. features experts and artists as well as a performance by Chicago’s all-Latina theater group Teatro Luna. Visit the Symposium page for more information and registration.And of course, let me know if you'll be there!
