“For Ladies Who Lead” Benefit Draws Powerhouse Women Around North Carolina
“For Ladies Who Lead” calls to action the most influential women leaders in the state to leverage their resources to make an impact in the lives of girls and young women through support of The Queen’s Foundation (TQF).
The annual conference coalesces all program participants the foundation has reached through its servant leadership, skill-building and life skills programs. The garden party-style gala will be held at the beautiful and historic Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on April 21, 2012 at 6:30 in the evening. For ticket information, call (866) 563-8848 or visit www.forladieswholead.org.
“The Queen’s Foundation is bringing together the women of North Carolina that have the qualities to create a thriving community,” says Michelle Clark, Retired Senior Vice President for American Express and TQF Board Member. “If you are a woman who sets the tone for success, please join us to empower girls to become the next generation of dynamic women,” Clark petitions.
TQF seeks women as their ultimate stakeholders. Nadia Shirin Moffett, Executive Director and Former Miss NC USA 2010 says, “The PowerHouse women in our state are our future board members, mentors to our girls and contributors to our cause. TQF has made it a goal that for every girl we reach in the state, we will provide a mentor. This is why events like these are so important. We cannot fulfill our mission without them.”
TQF has impacted the lives of over 150 girls and young women state-wide since it began in the fall of 2010. This benefit will give the girls and women the foundation aims to reach a tangible display of inspiration through the sponsorship and support of state and local PowerHouse women. TQF defines a PowerHouse woman as, “A woman of virtue and success that uses her gifts as a vessel to make positive contributions to the world.”
The gala includes an array of dinner cuisines, special presentations, a silent auction reception, live jazz and other entertainment. PowerHouse women, corporations or organizations can host a table, sponsor a former participant and purchase tickets here: www.ForLadiesWhoLead.org
