Annual women's event inspires in Santa Maria
By DORA SALTZMAN
Altrusa of the Central Coast and WonHeart have reunited to connect women and teenagers, motivate them, and devise a way to make positive advancements in their lives. The groups will accomplish those goals through their third annual International Women’s Event, held March 8 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the newly renovated UDW Homecare Providers Union Hall in Santa Maria.
In honor of International Women’s Day, the event will feature three keynote speakers discussing topics ranging from empowerment through financial education to “dream building” and living a balanced life to nutritional advice for those looking to make a lifestyle change.
Along with talks on these subjects, there will also be organic food and an array of informational booths.
WonHeart is a local nonprofit organization committed to bolstering the community so everyone feels secure, important, and revered for the individual they are. Joelyn Lutz, a Santa Maria resident, started the group as a way to give back to the community.
“There is so much phenomenal information out there right now,” Lutz said. “If young ladies are included, then minds will be inspired globally.”
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 or at the door for $20. Mother/daughter tickets are $20 for both, and teenagers are free. All proceeds benefit the community by funding programs that promote literacy, bullying prevention, and more.
Intern Dora Saltzman compiled this week’s Community Corner. Send comments or ideas to the Sun via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
