Join Us for Our Annual Luncheon

The Women’s Foundation of Colorado is thrilled to announce Robin Arzón as our Annual Luncheon special guest on Thursday, October 21st. This year, you can join us in person at the Colorado Convention Center or live streamed online. WFCO’s Annual Luncheon is the largest fundraiser in the state on behalf of Colorado women and their families. This year’s theme – the Superpower of Community – will shine a light on the collective power we have as a community to create change when we show up as our authentic selves.

Individual tickets to attend the Annual Luncheon at the Convention Center are expected to be released by the end of May. The number of tickets available and attendance guidelines will be contingent upon Convention Center policies.
