Women Together Luncheon
In its early years, Abby women asked friends and neighbors to join them at focus groups which eventually grew into formal luncheons. It was a simple recipe; spend a little time and money and help a neighbor. The first luncheon raised $2,000 that was quickly donated to two established domestic violence shelters, the Crisis Center for South Suburbia and the South Suburban Family Shelter.
A board of directors and a membership component were soon formed and as luncheon attendance grew, breast cancer awareness joined domestic violence prevention as Abby beneficiaries. At the same time, a scholarship program was initiated, helping women reach their potential through scholarships.
Abby’s original 20 members became almost 100 in 2009 and the board of directors hopes to continue growing that membership so that more nonprofit organizations will receive financial help. In its 28 years, the foundation has distributed more than a million dollars through its programs.
