news > Helping Women + Changing Lives Luncheon

The Alliance Foundation held their 2016 luncheon on September 8th.  Sponsored in part by Capital Sisters International, the purpose of the annual luncheon is to build awareness and provide financial support to improve the lives of women locally and around the world who are courageously envisioning and pursuing a different life for themselves. This event featured speakers Amelia Earhart (private pilot and TV traffic reporter, who recently replicated and completed the first Amelia Earhart’s round the world flight) and Estela Jocón (manager of Education services for Friendship Bridge). Both women spoke about the need to create opportunities for women and girls to achieve their potential. Alliance Foundation funds women pursuing higher education and women building their own businesses.  More information about the luncheon can be found here.
