Our annual Fall Legacy Luncheon celebrated the Venice Women’s Resource Center.

On Friday, November 3, we gathered at the beautiful Plantation Golf & Country Club for an empowering luncheon that honored the Women’s Resource Center’s impact on the Venice community.

We heard from Board Member Dr. Arthur Guilford, Ph.D., former Regional Chancellor of USF Sarasota-Manatee, as well as President & CEO Ashley Brown, before learning more about the lives of the three incredible Wonder Women honored.

During the event, attendees were treated to a special video highlighting the Women’s Resource Center, and also had the option to participate in a special raffle, a Wine Wall, and even a *Blinged Out* Live Auction!

All of the funds generated at this event directly support The Women’s Resource Center’s efforts to provide direction to women of all generations by inspiring, educating, and supporting them through life’s transitions.  The core of our mission is to provide counseling, education, and training which leads to emotional and financial fulfillment.

This was also the first opportunity for WRC supporters to glimpse the new WRC logo… but more on that coming SOON!
