Women of Achievement Table Captain Support Center

Table Captains are crucial to the success of YWCA Spokane’s annual Women of Achievement luncheonSimply put, we could not do it without you!

As a Table Captain, you are helping to create lasting change in the lives of the women and children who seek our services when impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment.

Being a Table Captain is a rewarding way to give back to your community, and can be as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Sign up as a Table Captain: Email tablecaptain@ywcaspokane.org to learn more or to sign up as a Table Captain for YWCA’s 37th awards luncheon held this year at the Spokane Convention Center, 334 W Spokane Falls Blvd, Spokane, WA 99201.
  2. Invite your friends/co-workers: Invite 9-10 friends/coworkers in your network to join you at this year’s awards celebration. Let them know their attendance provides crucial support for YWCA’s programs and services. Additional resources to support your success will be provided below as we move closer to the event.
  3. Have your guests register online: Direct each of your guests to our online registration form (once it is available) with a request to provide your name as their Table Captain. This will ensure your guests sit at the same table with you. If possible, share verbal commitments with our Table Captain Committee by emailing tablecaptain@ywcaspokane.org to help us prepare for a successful event.

This awards Luncheon has evolved into the YWCA Spokane’s largest fundraising event.

I know you will not want to miss this event! To register for the luncheon and for additional information, please go to ywcaspokane.org. Upon registration, please indicate that you are to be seated at my table by listing me as your Table Captain.
