We will no longer be accepting reservations online or over the phone but you are welcome to pay at the door of the event. Unfortunately, due to the fact that seating has already been done, we will not be able to honor seating requests.

The YWCA Leader Luncheon provides business, industry, and other community organizations an opportunity to honor women volunteers and employees by recognizing their leadership and contributions. This year’s event will once again honor eight outstanding women in the categories of Arts, Business & Professions, Communications & Technology, Education, Public Service, Racial Justice, Social Service, and Volunteer & Community Service.
