In honor of the Mill Creek Women’s Club's longtime dedication to the YWCA, president Judy Cromwell has been invited to speak at the YWCA Snohomish County Inspire Luncheon at the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center in Everett on May 1st, 2014.
“The YWCA is deeply appreciative of the support provided by these generous Mill Creek residents and we look forward to their participation in this inspiring event.” said YWCA PR & Marketing Manager, Kizha Davidson.
Cromwell will introduce keynote speaker Cheryl Strayed, best-selling author of the memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. Strayed has drawn a full house to the YWCA Snohomish County Inspire Luncheon. This annual fundraiser for the YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish is at full capacity, with more than 800 guests expected at the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center in Everett on Thursday, May 1st.
The event program will feature Jean Enersen (KING 5 TV) as event emcee, as well as Hollis Wong-Wear (Grammy-nominated vocalist and poet) and Judy Cromwell (Mill Creek Women’s Club president). Guests will also hear an inspiring testimonial from a woman who found safe and stable housing for her family through the YWCA.
Each spring since 1999, the Snohomish County Inspire Luncheon has drawn hundreds of people together to raise funds for the YWCA. Event proceeds support YWCA programs for women and families, including housing, employment, domestic violence and children’s services. These services touched more than 4,100 lives in Snohomish County last year.
Keynote speaker Cheryl Strayed is author of the #1 New York Times best-selling memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. Her personal account of hiking more than a thousand miles from California to Washington has garnered numerous awards and was the first featured selection for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. The film adaptation, starring Reese Witherspoon, is scheduled for release later this year.
