Auburn University’s Women’s Philanthropy Board (WPB) is hosting the 2015 WPB Fall Luncheon on Friday, November 13, 2015, at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.
The luncheon starts at noon and will last a little over an hour. Two hours prior to the luncheon, attendees are able to have coffee with Barbara Dooley, the keynote speaker. Barbara Dooley is an Auburn University Alumna and wife of legendary University of Georgia Head Coach Vince Dooley. Dooley is a breast cancer survivor and her husband is a throat cancer survivor.
“The 2015 Fall Women’s Philanthropy Board Luncheon is sure to be entertaining and inspiring with Barbara Dooley as the featured speaker. Through her life’s stories and experiences, she relates to women and men of all ages and encourages all people to thrive – even through adversity,” said Sidney James, Executive Directorfor the Cary Center.
The Dooley’s currently reside in Athens, Georgia where she is a nonprofit volunteer, award winning real estate professional, author and television personality. She has also served on boards and committees for United Way, Paralympics and St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation and is a member of the Athens Chamber’s Women in Business Council.
For this year’s fall luncheon, WPB has teamed up with the Women’s Club of Auburn, whose mission is to advance women leadership, provide education opportunities for members and the community and to encourage individual and collective philanthropy. “Our two organizations share much in common, especially our commitment to providing education about philanthropy,” said James.
Coffee with Barbara is from 10-11 a.m. in the Governor’s Room at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. Reservations cost $10 and can be made on the WPB website.
To attend the fall luncheon, you can either purchase a one of three table options or pay an individual fee. All options are listed and available for purchase on the WPB website.
