IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Irvington resident Andrea Wolfert is among the founding members of the new Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) of the United Way of Westchester and Putnam. The council promotes financial self-sufficiency, education, and health among women and their families.
The WLC will engage its members in philanthropy and volunteerism through two United Way initiatives. The “Teach Me to Fish” program gives hard-to-place women job training, work skills coaching, and professional opportunities. The second program, “Smart Start,” helps at-risk elementary school children to stay engaged in school and provides academic support.
The new organization is celebrating with a luncheon at Trump National Golf Club on Thursday, Dec. 5 from noon to 2 p.m. The club is located at 339 Pine Road in Briarcliff Manor.
Area women are encouraged to sign up and bring friends who share their commitment to building better communities. Tickets are $150 and can be purchased here. Proceeds will go toward supporting the Council and its mission.
The keynote speaker will be Retired U.S. Army Brigadier General Rebecca Halstead, the first female graduate of West Point to be promoted to General Officer rank.
Other guests include WLC national committee member Alina Klein from Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and a slate of local business women and community leaders.
Lisa Salvadorini, News 12 Westchester anchor and managing editor, hosts the event.
Luncheon guests are invited to join in the congratulatory champagne toast, learn about the real challenges women are experiencing in our community, and network with other women of influence.
