Fundraiser Benefits Michigan Women Forward


DETROIT.   April 8, 2019—Michigan Women Forward’s most important fundraiser, “Woman Up & Celebrate!,” will take over the main ballroom at Detroit’s Cobo Center on April 30 at 5:30 p.m.

The annual event demonstrates the widespread interest in MWF’s mission to accelerate Michigan’s progress by advancing equality and opportunity for its women and girls.

Detroit’s dinner is chaired by Gina Coleman, vice president, client and community relations director, PNC Financial Services; Lori Lancaster, vice president, Rush Group; and Betsy Meter, Michigan managing partner, KPMG.  The event also features a silent auction.

In 1986, 20 extraordinary visionaries conceived of an organization that would encourage women to play an active role in philanthropy and governance.  Today, MWF focuses on these primary pillars: Accelerating Women’s Entrepreneurship, Developing the Next Generation of Young Women Leaders, Sharing Women’s History and Leading the State’s Women’s Agenda, which includes the Enough SAID campaign to end the backlog of untested rape kits in Detroit.  #WomanUp  #UGOGirls  #HERStory #BehindEveryWoman

MWF also operates the Michigan Women’s Historical Center and Hall of Fame Center in Lansing.
