Circle of Women
Attend the Annual Circle of Women Fundraiser Luncheon
Network, shop the silent auction, and be inspired by the stories of the girls and women whose lives are changed by YWCA every day.
Attendees celebrate the power of women to create their own legacy through their philanthropic support and vision. As Susan B. Anthony remarked, “Woman must have a purse of her own.” Through collective passion, we can create the future we want to see.

About the Program
There is something powerful about coming together to listen to those whose voices aren't always heard -- the participants of the life-changing programs of YWCA Minneapolis.
