Who: YWCA of Minneapolis
What: 17th Annual YWCA Circle of Women
When: Apr. 25, 2013
Where: Minneapolis Convention Center
Why: To hear the stories of girls, women and men empowered by the YWCA of Minneapolis and fundraise to support the organization.
A sold out crowd of 1,300 women (plus a few supportive men) descended on the Convention Center to celebrate the success stories of girls, women, and men empowered by the the YWCA of Minneapolis and help perpetuate the organization's progress. Jon Charles Salon and Maha! Boutique styled an orange carpet runway show, and a silent auction put the latest styles in purses and handbags up for grabs.
The YWCA chose the occasion to announce their $20 million Power to Soar Campaign, of which $11 million has been raised, and announced the lead campaign gift from Mary Lee Dayton. Women helping women—check out photos from the event below.
