Women's Voice Luncheon Photo

Just last week, we gathered together for an extraordinary experience – Women’s Voices, the annual luncheon in support of Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation & Family Services. Women’s Voices was named the NUMBER TWO charity lunch event in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal’s 2017 Charity Event Guide – and we can understand why! Fun and inspiring remarks from our Keynote Speaker, author Marci Shimoff, and the joy of nearly 700 women coming together n the spirit of women’s philanthropy and community echo through our minds. Our hearts are simply filled with gratitude for everyone who made the day possible, especially our Women’s Voices Co-Chairs Nadine Durbach and Rabbi Corie Yutkin and Women’s Philanthropy President Heather Kline. Of course, we are thrilled to have had the chance to honor our 2017 Woman of the Year, Roz Adin Vogelfanger.  See photos
