WSBA Shopping and Community Service Luncheon

Event proudly sponsored by: Build a Stronger America, Pittsburgh Athletic Association and Minuteman Press, Liberty Avenue

You're invited to join the WSBA for its annual Community Service Event Luncheon, December 8, from 1-4 pm at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association.

This year's holiday event will support Dress for Success Pittsburgh. The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Attendees have the opportunity to give back to the community by donating new and gently used clothing and accessories directly to Dress for Success. WSBA members will also be able to contribute their knowledge and experience by signing up to speak at future Dress for Success Professional Women's Group gatherings.

Vendors will be on hand with an assortment of products; perfect for seasonal gift shopping. In addition, this event will offer informative guest speakers and a productive networking atmosphere open to all who wish to attend.

Key speaker for the event will be Leah Lizarondo Shannon, Chief Executive Officer, Dress for Success. Leah will share an inspirational speech, based on her 10-year track record of success working with both non-profit and for-profit organizations.

Sam Wieder of Commanding Confidence will show how you can command the confidence and relationship-building skills of a master networker in his presentation "Quick-Start Networking: How to Launch Business-Building Relationships Faster Than You Thought Possible".

Lunch will feature: Breast of Chicken Marsala with Wild Mushroom and Marsala Demi Glaze, Penne Pasta with Tomato Vodka Cream Sauce, Diced Tomato and Basil. The buffet will also offer Salad, Potatoes/Pasta, Vegetable, Fresh Rolls and Butter, Coffee, Tea, Iced Tea and Dessert.
