Do more with your lunch hour. Come together with the YWCA to improve the lives of women and families in our community and help the YWCA move closer to its $26.5 million Women Empowered (WE) Campaign goal.

Inspire Guests
The Luncheons are non-ticketed fundraising events. Individual guests are welcome! All guests will be asked to make a minimum suggested donation in support of YWCA programs and services: $150 at the Eastside and Seattle Luncheons and $100 at the Snohomish County Luncheon. Individual reservations are now open.

Inspire Table Captains
Table captains are absolutely essential to the success of the Luncheons. If you are interested in inviting friends and colleagues to join you at your very own table, sign up now. You can also share a table by inviting a friend to fill a table together or we’ll match you with someone. Are you a returning table captain? Log in and RSVP.
