Women’s Legacy Fund Spring Luncheon returning to Sanibel Harbour

By Staff | May 1, 2011

Women of philanthropy will gather at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s Fifth Annual Women’s Legacy Fund Spring Luncheon Friday, May 13. The luncheon will take place at the Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa, located at 17260 Harbour Pointe Drive in South Fort Myers from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the Women’s Legacy Fund and meet other like-minded women who care about their community,” said Julia East, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.

The luncheon will include a report by last year’s grant recipients on the impact of their Women’s Legacy Fund grant and an announcement of this year’s WLF grant recipients who are focused on homeless issues in our community.

The newest WLF Angels will also be announced during the event. The Angel honorary designation is for mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, grandchildren, friends and other loved ones, either living or deceased, who have had a special impact on the lives of those around them. WLF members can make the special women in their lives a WLF Angel with a minimum contribution of $1,000 in their name.

Attendees need not be members to attend the luncheon. The cost is $32 per person and reservations are required by Monday, May 9. To register, please contact Women’s Legacy Fund via e-mail at wlfevents@floridacommunity.com or by calling 239-274-5900.
