Press Release Contact: For Immediate Release Varija Yelagalawadi October 3, 2013 Mobile: (408) 431-**** E-mail: YWCA Silicon Valley Hosts 23rd Annual Luncheon SANTA CLARA, CA – The 23rd Annual YWCA Silicon Valley Luncheon will be held on October 10, 2013 from 11:00am to 1:30pm in the Santa Clara Convention Center. Dr. Jane Goodall, best-known as the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and as a United Nations “Messenger of Peace,” will be the keynote speaker this year. Her primary mission is to help audiences recognize their personal responsibility and ability to effect change through consumer action, lifestyle change and activism. In previous years, keynote speakers have included Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Dee Dee Myers, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Sonia Manzano, Alfre Woodard and more. This year, over 1,500 professionals, executives, political leaders, educators and community volunteers are expected to attend the luncheon. Over 40 companies such as Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Gilead Science and others sponsor this annual luncheon. Though the event is not ticketed, YWCA is asking for a minimum $150 donation from guests in order to better support the Silicon Valley community through YWCA’s programs and services. “This event is always something good to look forward to. It is a great fundraiser on YWCA’s part and gives all of us community members a chance to interact with others who support the same organization,” says Janice Berthold of Heffernan Insurance Brokers. YWCA Silicon Valley, founded in 1905, is an organization that focuses on changing the lives of women, children and families. All the proceeds from fundraisers and events go towards programs and services provided to the individuals and families in the community. YWCA’s mission is to promote selfsufficiency over dependency, working constantly towards empowering women and eliminating racism. In the past year, YWCA Silicon Valley helped 18,000 individuals in the community. - ### -
