Best Foot Forward Raises $3,467.00

Nearly 100 women of all ages gathered on April 29, 2017, at the Upper Bucks Campus of Bucks County Community College to be inspired, learn something new, and have fun at Best Foot Forward, our annual major fundraising event. In addition to breakout sessions, vendors, and raffles, attendees were inspired by the life stories of keynote speaker, Jeane Coyle, president, and CEO of Penn Community Bank and Elina Fuhrman, chef and founder of Soupelina. The evening culminated in a fashion show presented by Frox, with many members of the community -- we recognized many friendly faces -- walking the runway as models.

The evening was a success based on the smiles on your faces alone, but there’s even more to celebrate as the proceeds from the event totaled $3,467.00. These funds will allow Launch Pad: Prepare for Success, a program presented by Sisters U in conjunction with Bucks County Community College’s Upper Bucks Campus to continue to be presented free of charge to all attendees. It is a six-module certificate program where local business experts lead sessions to provide students of all ages with skills to enhance their job searches and increase their potential for success in their professional endeavors.

For all of this, we thank YOU!

Special thanks to Amy McDermott of Heart and Soul Portraits for the incredible event photography and to Perkasie Florist for the gorgeous corsages for our volunteer team.

Best Foot Forward: Empowering Women of All Ages

We are still on a high of our first major fundraiser, Best Foot Forward: Empowering Women of All Ages. Approximately 100 women gathered at Bucks County Community College's Upper Bucks Campus for a fun evening on Saturday, April 2, 2016. Designed as an evening for all women to create their own experience, the event included breakout sessions, "try-its," an inspiring keynote from Lu Ann Cahn and a joyous spring fashion show by FROX. 

We are grateful to Perkasie Borough for co-presenting this event with us and look forward to sharing news of the proceeds very soon. The proceeds will be used to further the mission of Sisters U to empower, educate and encourage ALL women.
