2020 Celebrating Women Breakfast

Out of an abundance of caution, our annual Celebrating Women© Breakfast has been postponed to Monday, October 26, 2020. We hope that we will be able to hold this powerful gathering of our community and will provide timely updates on the status of the event. We deeply value our community of supporters and will take necessary precautions to ensure their wellbeing. 

The Celebrating Women® Breakfast is the premier fundraising event for women by women in New York City. It is a seated march for women’s issues. It honors the strength and courage of our grantee partners; women who find groundbreaking solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Join us as we celebrate visionary women who serve as role models, leaders, and philanthropists. And last, but certainly not least, the Breakfast is about honoring our Board, Alumnae and volunteers, whose courage and determination sustain and inspire us to keep moving forward.
