The Women to Women group is proud to have funded a variety of projects since our inception. Each year, 70% of Fashion Show profit provides grants so local girls can pursue their university education. In the past we’ve built a kitchen at the La Penita Senior Center, helped fund the Cancer de Mama (breast cancer) Clinic and our Christmas Basket Giveaway to deserving families in the local area has been an overwhelming success. Four years ago, we added a Breakfast Program at the local Junior High School and helped fund a new floor at a local Kindergarten and shade covering at another.
Thank you for helping us sponsor these wonderful projects! Click the links below to learn more.
The Women to Women Fashion Show organization believes that supporting education is a priority. Each year, we designate a large part of the event proceeds to sponsor university level scholarships for area young women.
