Tickets going fast for Feb. 9 Women’s Luncheon featuring acclaimed author of “The Glass Castle”

Tickets are going fast for next week’s United Way Women’s Leadership Luncheon featuring Jeannette Walls, author of the best-selling memoir, The Glass Castle. 

Walls, as many of you already know, grew up in a brilliant, eccentric and often homeless family, which routinely went without food and indoor plumbing. Rather than dwell on hardships, she and her siblings were encouraged to read Shakespeare and dream of someday living in a beautiful glass house.

It’s an incredible story − and we’re so excited to hear her discuss how she overcame poverty, hunger, homelessness and other critical issues that United Way is working to alleviate in our own community.

If you haven’t yet purchased tickets, a limited number are still available. They’re priced at $60 (for open seating) through this Friday. After that, the price will be $75. Corporate tables, priced at $800 (reserved seating for 10) are also available.

In addition to enjoying a great luncheon and a chance to network with some of Orlando’s most fabulous women, you’ll also be giving back to help local women and children in need.

The Women’s Leadership Initiative, now in its fourth year, raises funds, awareness and volunteer support to address the unique health and human service needs of women – and those they love.
