Women United Celebrates Impact

More than 500 people attended the Women United Bruncheon on May 31. Guests learned about the needs of women throughout their lifetime from speaker Anna Maria Chávez and honored Betsy Brenner as the Linda T. Mellowes Woman of the Year. Read the recap to learn more about the event and how to contribute to Pack the Purse.

Thank you to Aurora Health Care for sponsoring the event.

The Emerging Leaders led 90 volunteers for Day of Action at H.W. Longfellow School, a Milwaukee Community School.
