The ETFO-WR Status of Women Committee is pleased to be able to sponsor registration to an afternoon of entertainment, conversation and more to celebrate International Women's Day. Please click "SEND RSVP" on this page to register and the Zoom link will be sent to you in advance of the event. 

Join us for an afternoon of entertainment, conversation and more as we celebrate our "Sheroes" with every accomplishment we've made and will make in our communities.

Come for the laughs with our comedians. Hear spoken word that will truly take your breath away. Dance and sing with us in celebration in a safe and inclusive space.

This is a day to reflect on who we are and where we want to be. How we move through a pandemic and how we lift each other up.

Proceeds from our event will be distributed to our local community partners that support all women in our community, especially those in crisis. In the past, this celebration of women has raised funds in support of Women's Crisis Services, ROOF, SHORE and the YWCA.
