24th Annual Women's Power Breakfast


Apr 27, 2017
07:01 PM until 07:01 PM


One in five Michigan children live in poverty and more than one-third of children in Detroit are living in extreme poverty. On Thursday, April 27, 2017, the 24th annual Women’s Power Breakfast (WPB) will welcome nearly 700 women (and some very lucky men) to Cobo Center for Michigan’s most powerful charity event of the year. Benefiting Gleaners Community Food Bank, the WPB unites the premier female business, civic and community leaders from across southeast Michigan in the fight against hunger. Gleaners Community Food Bank’s Board of Directors Chair Katy Locker will take the reigns as the 2017 WPB chair. Joining her will be Honorary Chair Debbie Guild of PNC Financial Services Group and Founding Chair Dulcie Rosenfeld. Last year, Gleaners’ “Women’s Power” events (Breakfast & Happy Hour) combined to host over 1,000 of Michigan’s most prevalent female movers and shakers. Proceeds from the powerful pair of events allowed Gleaners to provide over 1.1 million meals to hungry children across southeast Michigan. Women’s Power Breakfast guests will enjoy the consummate networking experience, a simple breakfast and an inspirational program that always brings patrons to their fee, motivated to help Gleaners continue its essential work. The WPB supports Gleaners’ Million Meal Match, a month-long campaign aimed at raising one million meals and helping kids in southeast Michigan grow and thrive. Normally, $1 provides three meals but during the Million Meal Match, $1 provides SIX meals for hungry children across southeast Michigan! Now in its 24th year, the Women’s Power Breakfast has become one of southeast Michigan’s “can’t-miss” charity events of the year. The Women’s Power Breakfast is historically a sell out - Guests are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets. 24th Annual Women's Power Breakfast Thursday, April 27, 2017 | 7:00am - 9:00am Cobo Center 1 Washington Blvd. Detroit, MI 48226 Women’s Power Breakfast Ticket $120 (360 720 Meals!)
