This year’s luncheon, co-chaired by Janiece Evans-Page of Fossil and Virginia Rose-Harris of Texas Health Resources, brought together 1,500 of the community’s most influential business and philanthropic leaders who gathered to support Texas Women’s Foundation’s mission to advance the lives of women, girls and their families in Texas.

Also in attendance were 200 young girls from middle and high schools across the region who experienced the luncheon via livestream in an adjoining room, and had the opportunity to meet keynote speaker Elaine Welteroth. The luncheon raised $1.5 million to advance economic security and leadership opportunities for women and girls.
