Women & Girls Fund - Wonder of Women

The 21st annual Wonder of Women (WOW) event was held on May 3, 2022 at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. About 400 individuals joined us for an uplifting evening. Grantee speakers showcased the impact of the Fund before Ayodele Casel, the featured guest speaker who is an acclaimed tap dancer and choreographer, took the stage to the delight of the crowd. Save the date of May 2, 2023 for the next WOW event!
