Get Your Derby Hats Ready for the 2018 Leading Ladies Luncheon

And join us as we celebrate Mother’s Day in style!

As the perfect commencement to our annual Mother’s Day Initiative, The Daisie Foundation is proud to announce our 2018 Leading Ladies Luncheon, taking place on Saturday, April 28th, 2018. We’re very excited to be partnering with The W Hotel who, as our presenting sponsor, will host the luncheon at their downtown City Center location. This stunning backdrop provides the perfect setting for the event, which is quickly shaping up to be our best ever!

Featuring a Kentucky Derby-style theme (with the race happening the following weekend), all of those in attendance will be sporting their best derby hats and dresses, and be greeted with a refreshing Mint Julep to kick off the festivities. From there, we’ll be recognizing and honoring a number of leading ladies who are making a positive impact throughout Chicago in business, education, community outreach and more. Finally, after hearing inspiring stories from our keynote speaker, we’ll round out the day with a lively fashion show featuring some of the latest affordable trends and styles of 2018. And with the help of our incredibly generous sponsors, our leading ladies will be inspired to look and feel their best, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Plus, as a special bonus for VIP ticket holders, we are proud to announce that our distinguished Leading Lady honorees will be participating in an exclusive panel discussion prior to the luncheon. Moderated by none other than Kendra Chaplin, founder of Chicago Woman Magazine, VIP guests will get a chance to find out exactly how these empowered women lead in their own unique way, what keeps them going, and how we can all begin to lead the charge in our own lives. You won’t want to miss these incredible stories and words of wisdom!

If you wish to get involved by becoming a sponsor or volunteer, please email us at You can also purchase tickets here. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the Daisie Foundation’s ability to serve the community through our ongoing Mother’s Day Initiative, and all donations and sponsorships are tax deductible.

Please join us all in celebrating the mothers who make our community great!
