Each year, the Business Women’s Mega Mixer gives back by selecting a nonprofit organization that supports and celebrates the accomplishments of women. The Mega Mixer has donated over $30,000 to organizations that serve women in the areas of education, workforce preparedness, and transition services.
This year, the beneficiary organization will be the National Women Veterans Association of America. Founded in San Diego by Tara Jones, a US Navy Veteran, this organization provides resources and referrals to women veterans to help them and their family’s successful transition to civilian life. In addition to raising funds for the organization, the event producers are offering free admission to the first 100 women veterans who register.
According to Bergquist, “We chose the National Women Veterans Association of America because this organization represents the true spirit of Women’s History Month, which is to recognize the accomplishments of women and the sacrifices they have made throughout history. From the American Revolution to the War on Terror, women veterans are our unsung heroes. Through our contribution to the National Women Veterans Association of America, we are giving back to those who have already given so much.”
In addition to raising funds and awareness for this worthy organization, the Business Women’s Mega Mixer will recognize five amazing women with the Women Making History awards. Each award will recognize the recipients’ accomplishment in one of the following areas: Entrepreneurship, Business Leadership, Innovation, Heroism and Diversity.
