The Women Inspired Network is having its next meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at the Lock 16 Café and Gift Shop, 754 First St., La Salle.
The group will hear from Melissa Olivero, local attorney and judge, who has spent several years involved with family law issues. Olivero is a trustee with Illinois Valley Community College and serves with the National Labor Relations Board.
All women are invited to attend and current members are encouraged to bring a guest, according to a press release.
In 2017, WIN members contributed more than $15,800, which was distributed to three local organizations through a grant process; Freedom House of Princeton, serving five counties; ADV/SAS who serves La Salle and Livingston counties and Starved Rock Regional Center, formerly Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau counties.
The goal of the WIN organization is to gather, give and grow to at least 150 women who will contribute annually to the giving circle, resulting in more than $30,000 for distribution to programs and projects that empower and enhance the lives of women and children throughout La Salle, Bureau and Putnam counties.
Women who are willing to host a small group of friends and family members in their home, office or a local restaurant for a small informational meeting about WIN, are encouraged to contact Trisha Schafer, chairwoman of the Women Inspired Network Steering Committee. Registration is required no later than Wednesday, April 11.
For more information or to register, contact Trisha Schafer at 815-872-0087 or Pamela Beckett at 815-252-2906 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
