Connect. Empower. Inspire. All of this and more took place at our annual Best Foot Forward: Empowering Women of All Ages Women’s Conference & Fundraiser on Saturday, April 6, 2019. Many thanks to our host site, Bucks County Community College – Upper Bucks Campus, for use of their beautiful facility.
The highlights of the evening included a keynote from WOGL 98.1 radio personality and Philadelphia radio icon Marilyn Russell, the presentation of the Empowered Woman of the Year award to Linda Reid, and the inaugural Sisters U Best Foot Forward Scholarship, awarded to Julianna Rotondo. Be sure to read more about all three of these amazing women in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of U Magazine.
The Sisters U Best Foot Forward Scholarship was created to recognize a student attending Bucks County Community College Upper Bucks Campus or a member of Sisters U who has demonstrated initiative and leadership potential by putting their best foot forward in their community. The award for this scholarship is $500 toward a class at Bucks County Community College.
Thanks to all who attended, proceeds from the event totaled $5,103.67. In addition to funding the scholarship, these funds will be used to further Sisters U external programming, including the Launch Pad: Prepare for Success program held in conjunction with the Bucks County Community College Upper Bucks Campus.
Many thanks to our sponsors, attendees, speakers, breakout session presenters, vendors, raffle prize donors, committee members, and all the unsung heroes who make events like this hum. It takes everyone to make it such a special evening, including the amazing eye of Amy McDermott of Heart and Soul Portraits, who provided the event photography.
