Ticket Proceeds Will Go to Charity
We have designated the proceeds from ticket sales to support charities that support women in business. Our steering committee performed early due diligence and arrived at this list (full disclosure: one of these organizations, "We Worthy Women" was founded by a member of our steering committee.)
At the event, participants will be offered a poll where they can choose one of the three groups. Funds will be distributed based on the proportion of votes given each group.

For every $1 invested into JA programs, $45 is created in economic prosperity.
