In 2019 we will host the 15th Annual Power of the Purse event, our signature annual fundraiser, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo.
Power of the Purse has become a signature community luncheon event offering men and women the opportunity to:
- Celebrate the impact the Women’s Fund has made in the community
- Recognize the important work of our grant recipients
- Learn more about issues facing women and girls today
- Financially support the Women’s Fund endowment and granting programs
Considered NBA star Shaquille O’Neal’s “Head coach for Happiness”, Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo is on a mission to free people from their inner critic to create the health, wealth and happiness they crave.
Elizabeth has had the opportunity to work with several Fortune 500 companies, presenting large-scale opening keynotes as well as running smaller workshops and exclusive executive roundtables with audience sizes ranging from 20 to well over 3,000. Previous clients include Westinghouse, Solo Cup, Deloitte, UBS, Lincoln Financial, Dunkin’ Donuts, Zappos, Canyon Ranch, Lexis Nexis, and NTT Data.
Her ability to help women unlock their own, unique personal happiness code has made Elizabeth America’s most interviewed celebrity psychologist, with over 100 radio and TV appearances on shows like Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, The TODAY Show, Steve Harvey, CNN, Fox Business News, and others. Dr. Lombardo’s expertise contributed to articles in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, SUCCESS, Fast Company, Better Homes & Gardens, Huffington Post, Forbes, and other respected publications.
