Fundraiser focuses on women leadership

Posted:

A local fundraiser looks to promote the importance of women as leaders in the community.

 The Girl Scouts Forever Luncheon raises money to continue new programs in the area. This year the Rockford Public Schools joined in on the mission.   The fundraiser reconnects with the community, to take the time and utilize their resources to help move girl scouts forward.

 Rebecca Epperson, Chair of Girl Scouts Forever Luncheon says the skills taught are key for leadership.  "There's a plethora of skill sets that they learn that they can take on in life and will become leaders and make sure were keeping those leaders right here for the growth and wealth of our community overall."

 Over 450 people attended this year's luncheon including politicians and business leaders.
