2015 Empowering Women Luncheon

Home > Get Involved > Upcoming Events > 2015 Empowering Women Luncheon

Thank you for Making our Luncheon Another Great Success!

Lucille O'Neal

 She may be the mother of one of the greatest athletes of all time, but Lucille O'Neal is much more than "Shaquille O'Neal's mom." She has endured poverty, rejection, abuse, addiction, and the illness of a child, yet today her faith and compassion for others is stronger than ever. 

O'Neal will be sharing her life story candidly - and often humorously - in her keynote address during the Luncheon. YWCA participants will also be sharing their stories of facing and overcoming adversity with support from the YWCA.


For questions call 368-2261 or email cirish@ywcarochester.org 

Change for Good.

The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County has been a powerful resource for local women and girls since 1883.  The funds raised through the Empowering Women Luncheon help the YWCA provide housing and support services to over 1,000 women and children each year.

Your participation in the Luncheon will help provide shelter and support to more than 300 homeless women and children in our emergency housing—a total of 5,900 nights of shelter each year.

Your support today will help young mothers succeed. 73% of the seniors in our School-Age Parents program graduated from high school or obtained their GED. A startling contrast to national data which indicate that 70% of teen mothers drop out of school.

A special Thank You to our Sponsors!
