Women of Achievement Alumnae attending the 2019 luncheon.

Together, with the support of more than 1,300 guests and 50 organizations, we raised $328,000 at YWCA Spokane’s 37th annual Women of Achievement awards luncheon!

On Friday, October 11th, 2019, YWCA Spokane gathered together with amazing friends and supporters from the Spokane community to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of 10 trailblazers in our community. We were also inspired by a powerful keynote, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for this special celebration. This event provides our community with the opportunity to honor extraordinary women who make a real difference in Spokane. This luncheon allows YWCA Spokane to spread awareness about domestic violence and its impact on survivors and their children and as well as inspire individuals and businesses to commit to act.

Thank You!

As our largest and most critical fundraiser, the support provided at this event helps YWCA Spokane continue to provide vital programs and services to thousands of women, children, and families each year. Thanks to YOU, it creates pathways toward safety, hope, and healing.

On behalf of the over 16,000 women, children, and families we serve this year who are impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment, we thank you!

Thank You To Our amazing 2019 Sponsors too!

Kick-Off To Domestic Violence Action Month

The luncheon also provides for an inspirational kick-off to Domestic Violence Action Month. On the stage and throughout the event, community leaders shared their commitment to #EndTheSilence to help #EndTheViolence this October and going forward.
