Women’s Leadership Network Focuses on “The World and Its Wars” in New York City

On October 3, 2017, the PLUS Foundation held a Women’s Leadership Network luncheon at the Yale Club in New York.  The event sold out ahead of time once again, due in large part to the featured speaker, Robin Wright.  Ms. Wright is a war correspondent, who has reported for the Washington Post, the New York Times and New Yorker Magazine, among others.  Ms. Wright shared with the audience many stories of her years as a correspondent from some of the most dangerous places in the world, as well as her personal experiences meeting and interviewing leaders of government, factions of conflict and terrorist insurgents.  While the subject matter of the program was serious, Ms. Wright was also humorous, and shared a lot of slides to put much of her stories in context.  The luncheon was extremely well-received, and was another great program in the series of Women’s Leadership Network events.

Our next Women’s Leadership Network speaker is Kat Cole, the luncheon keynote at the 2017 PLUS Conference in Atlanta. Don’t miss it!

Rain Can’t Deter Eastern Chapter from Golfing

On Monday, August 7 the PLUS Eastern Chapter hosted its 2017 Golf Tournament benefiting the PLUS Foundation. The event drew 145 golfers to Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, and more than $25,000 was raised for the PLUS Foundation.

“Despite a steady rain most of the day, it didn’t dampen the spirits of the golfers at the Eastern Chapter Golf Tournament at the Wykagyl Country Club.  With rain gear on and umbrellas at the ready, the golfers had a great day between the rain drops. The 120 year old Top 100 Classic golf course, which has hosted both PGA and LPGA events, did not disappoint.  All the attendees had a fun day on the course and a fantastic reception and awards ceremony after golf.”
