Dining for Women at Lanier Library Oct. 7

A community informational meeting about Dining for Women will be held at Lanier Library on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 11 a.m.-noon. You are invited to learn about this nonprofit global giving circle that funds grassroots projects working in developing countries.

Dining for Women celebrates the power of the individual to see an injustice and act to change it; to see need and act to fill it. Dining for Women’s members are deeply involved in the grantees we support and the problems we seek to address. Our education component is equally as important as our fundraising.

Our vision is clear:  We envision a world where the lives of women and girls have been transformed and extreme poverty has been reduced because Dining for Women connected people in creative, powerful ways that assure gender equality.

There is no charge for the event. Light refreshments will be served.

For more information about the October 7 event please email Kay Manley, Carolinas Regional Leader, at car1@diningforwomen.org.
