Please join Women Organizing Women Democrats (WOW Dems) for our major 2016 fundraising event, Power of the Purse, to be held on Saturday, February 27th, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Rooftop Event Spot in historic downtown Plano. Proceeds from this event will be dedicated to supporting women candidates in the upcoming election cycle. Power of the Purse will feature a luncheon, keynote speaker and silent auction (purses, handbags and totes in keeping with our theme). The luncheon will be an Italian Buffet with Pasta Station and entertainment will be provided by the Irma Rangel Leadership Academy.
We are delighted that Regina Montoya has agreed to be our keynote speaker. Ms. Montoya is a Harvard trained attorney, a passionate leader in the nonprofit community, an award-winning television commentator and author. In 1993, Ms. Montoya served in the White House as an Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. She is currently working on a book about the importance of incorporating Latinos into the economic, political and social fabric of America, and she is a frequent public speaker on a wide range of issues including healthcare, poverty, diversity and children.
Ms. Montoya earned her B.A. from Wellesley College, where she is a Trustee Emerita, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. She also has served as vice president and elected director of the Harvard University Alumni Association. We are thrilled to have Ms. Montoya as the keynote speaker at our annual WOW Dems Fundraising Luncheon.
