Jewish Women’s Foundation hosts luncheon


Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches recently celebrated the start of the season by spotlighting the foundation’s efforts to improve the lives of women and girls with a panel discussion.

It took place at Table 26 in West Palm Beach during the foundation’s trustee luncheon.

The panel was moderated by JWF CEO Tami Baldinger and included Julie Swindler, CEO of Families First of Palm Beach County; Michelle Gonzalez, CEO of Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County; Diana Stanley, CEO of The Lord’s Place; Angela Clarke, executive director of PACE Center for Girls of Palm Beach County; and Beatrice Gonzalez, director of Community Outreach of Women of Tomorrow.

The organizations, who are grantee partners, discussed the local impact of JWF’s funding and the need to raise awareness and funding for issues impacting women and girls.

“Starting the season joined by like-minded, local female leaders was a perfect way to remind the community and our supporters why our work is so critical,” said Baldinger. “The panel discussion allowed us to reflect on our success and provided the affirmation that there is still much work to be done to remove the barriers to equality and justice. As we look ahead to the rest of the season, we are inspired by what we can accomplish and look forward to raising funds at our December luncheon, which will help us support even more women and girls.”

The luncheon, which will be held at The Colony in Palm Beach Dec. 13, is aptly named “Imagine the Possibilities” and encourages guests to envision a world where women and children all over the globe can be safe and reach their full potential.

Funds raised are earmarked to support JWF’s grantmaking and advocacy.
