The Annual YWCA Luncheon has earned its reputation as the most powerful non-profit event in the Silicon Valley. It also serves as the YWCA's largest annual fundraiser. Funds are used to support the organization's community programs and services that annually serve more than 18,000 women and families.
Over 40 companies and individuals sponsor the annual luncheon and more than 80 community volunteers serve as Table Captains, inviting friends, family, and business associates to the luncheon. Total attendance for the event is expected to be over 1,500 people. This is a non-ticketed fundraising event; guests attend as an individual or sponsored guest. A donation appeal will be made during the event, requesting a donation of $150.00 or more to support the on-going programs and services of the YWCA Silicon Valley.
