The YWCA Snohomish County Inspire Luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2013. The featured keynote speaker is Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of the memoirs, “Eat, Pray, Love” and “Committed."

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the YWCA Inspire Luncheons, when more than 3,400 guests come from far and wide for a lunchtime experience like no other.

The Luncheons are an opportunity to connect with others in support of a shared cause – empowering women and families – and celebrate the achievements of the YWCA across Seattle, King and Snohomish counties.

The emcee for this event will be Jean Enersen of KING 5 TV.
