Leading Ladies Luncheon

Daisie Foundation Leading Ladies Luncheon 2017

Join Our Kick Off Event For Our 2017 ‘May is for Mothers’ Initiative
April 29th, 2017  ~  Chez Chicago

A Better Day With Julie, lead by host Julie Hightower, has partnered with the Daisie Foundation to raise money and support for our upcoming Mother’s Day Makeover, which aims to empower 150  ladies in Chicago. To kick off the festivities, we are inviting sponsors and guests to take part in our Pre-Derby Hat & Tea Luncheon before this year’s Kentucky Derby.

This one-of-a-kind event held at Chez Chicago will be hosted by Michelle Relerford, Weekend Anchor for NBC 5 Chicago News and will include keynote speakers: Katy Lynch, former CEO of Techweek; Jeannine Turner, MD, Cardiologist at Cardiac Wellness Consultants, SC and National Speaker for Go Red for Women; and Bela Gandhi, Founder and President of Smart Dating Academy, also seen on Steve Harvey Show, NBC Today Show, and Good Morning America.  All are coming together to not only honor the valuable role mothers play in our society as parents and leaders, but also to inspire these independent, beautiful women to reclaim their confidence in both their professional and personal lives.

The festivities will also include a Spring Fashion show hosted by Lourdes Duarte, WGN Anchor, to present the latest affordable styles and wardrobes for professional women.

This entire day is about promoting inspiration, fashion, and fun, all while giving mothers the support they need to shine brighter than they ever thought possible. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the Daisie Foundation’s ability to serve the community through our ongoing Mother’s Day Initiative. All donations and sponsorships are tax deductible.

We’d be honored to have you on board. Remember–changing lives starts with just one day, and every life we’re able to touch in a positive way can lead to A Better Day, A Better Life. We hope you’ll join us!
