On October 23, The Atlanta Women’s Foundation held our 17th annual Numbers Too Big To Ignore fundraising luncheon at the Georgia World Congress Center. This year’s luncheon raised over $500,000 for the women and girls of our community.
The focus of this year’s luncheon was the 81,000 girls living in poverty in the five-county metro Atlanta area. At the event, Executive Director Kelly Dolan announced the Foundation’s campaign to raise $81,000 for the 81,000 girls living in poverty. In addition to raising funds for the campaign, AWF is focused on raising awareness on the issues girls living in poverty face and is joined by its grantee and allied partners working to help girls and women achieve economic self-sufficiency.
