This is the first Incredible Women Party where every attendee will NOT be required to speak in front of the group. This is for two reasons. First- so that we can give more time to the 25 non-profits and really give them a chance to educate us and give a call to action. Second- some women are terrified of speaking in public and haven't attended a party yet because of it. This is your chance to come and get a feel for what goes on at Incredible Women Parties with no pressure.

If you would like to snag 1 of the 25 slots, please email me at gina@acwomen.org. Otherwise, you can just purchase your tickets and show up. What if we dont fill 25 slots? That will just mean more of a chance to win money for the organizations that do have women represent them. Remember- it's just as much about telling a room full of women about the awesome work you're doing as it is leaving with extra funds.

Last year at Charity of Choice, we had 68 women speak about non-profits. We learned about organizations we had never heard of and we also learned how we could help support them. Tell us if you need money, tell us if you need volunteers to show up at 8am on Saturday mornings. Empower us to help- I know so many women are hungry for connections and volunteer opportunities.

Your ticket price includes catered food. $10 of the $20 entry fee will be put directly toward the cash prizes for the top three organizations. Each presenting party will have a number assigned and after all 25 entrants have gone, we will vote. Top place gets 50%, second gets 30% and third gets 20%. Last year, our winners were Dorothy's House, Pinky Swear and Give Grace, Give Hope. What an honor it was to present them with checks.

Each person who attends needs to purchase a ticket. I am not limiting it to 50 tickets this time since it will not impact time. Encourage friends to come along and support you and your non-profit. You'll leave with knowledge about how to help our community and new friends.

A cash bar will be available. When entering the Glen Oaks neighborhood, you will drive all the way through to the very back where you'll find the gorgeous clubhouse. Cant wait to see you there!
