eat LUNCH give
Friday, April 27, 2018
Boston Park Plaza Hotel

eat LUNCH give has become an important spring tradition for Women’s Lunch Place. Previous luncheons have been sold-out and exceeded the fundraising goal. Last year, 276 guests attended the 6th annual eat LUNCH give event at the Boston Park Plaza, raising over $250,000 for Women’s Lunch Place.  This year, we hope to raise $260,000 to meet the increased need for services for our guests.

At the luncheon, the 2017 Women Who Give Award was presented to Marylou Sudders, Massachusetts Secretary of Health & Human Services. She joined past honorees Arnita Cooper, Linda Kreisel, Mary Lou Monaco, Nancy Shieffelin, Barbara McCann, Vivien Li, Angela Menino and Micho Spring as women who set an inspiring example of women supporting women in this community.

Our 2018 co-chairs Mary Carty and Glenn Quirion and the luncheon committee are looking forward to making this event a success.

We are grateful to our 2017 Raffle Donors for their support!
