The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County’s 13th annual Empowering Women Luncheon took place October 2 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Record setting funds were raised to support YWCA Housing, Young Adult Services and YWCA foundational values of partnering with the community to address and eliminate racism.
Keynote speaker, Janine Latus, author of “If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister’s Story of Love, Murder and Liberation” was joined by YWCA participant speaker, Stephanie Martin who shared her own story of empowerment.
A surprise performance by the School of the Arts created an impactful ending for an afternoon of mission driven messaging.
