And the 2015 Annual Fall Gathering Speaker is…

Mark your calendars for October 15!

Each year, Women United in Philanthropy hosts a fall gathering like none other. It’s our trademark event. Without fail, guests describe the evening as “magical.”  Here’s why:

It’s always at a snazzy venue with great food and beautiful surroundings. This year, it’s at Ridgewood Country Club.

There’s no fundraising. Ever. Instead, you get to see how a giving circle works. We will vote and award a grant to a great cause helping local women in need–right there, in the room. Philanthropy at work.

It’s not a sit-down dinner, so you can mingle and talk to everyone. Come by yourself and we’ll introduce you around. Come with a gaggle of girls, and we’ll reserve you a table.

And we always have a great speaker. This year is no exception.

In fact, our speaker this year is Brooke Shields!

A native of Brooke Shields HEADSHOT high resHaworth, New Jersey and alumna of Dwight Englewood School and Princeton University, we know Brooke as the acclaimed model and award-winning film, TV and stage actress. At this event, we’ll get to know her as mother, daughter, author and women’s issues advocate. In a new format for us, we’ll have a conversation, not a speech. More like a talk together, with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. And of course, we’ll have a book signing!

Bring your mothers, your daughters and your girlfriends. Tickets will be available online soon. There are only so many seats in the house, so please don’t delay.

It’s an extraordinary night. I hope to see you there!
