It is not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.
18th Annual Circle of Strength Women’s Fundraising Brunch: “Growing the Circle”
September 21, 2019 10 am to 12:30 pm
Riverside Golf and Country Club
When women get together, magic happens! Be part of this special group during the 18th Annual Circle of Strength Women’s Fundraising Brunch. The focus of this extraordinary event, and all the women involved, is to get struggling women and children the mental health care they need. All the money raised pays for counseling for financially fragile women and their children. Please join us!
The need for mental health care looms large. Although there has been some progress with health care reform, significant barriers to accessing timely, meaningful care remain, particularly for lower-income women and children. A large number of people remain uninsured. For those with some access to plans, limitations on providers, huge deductibles, complex and confusing rules, and bureaucracy all stand in the way of getting help when needed.
But you can make a difference. Invite your friends and you can have fun while transforming lives!
