Linda Warden, Executive Director
It's hard to believe there are only 13 days until Women of Promise! I invite you to join us at 5:30pm on April 20th at Lbrands as we celebrate our Women of Promise event.
 
I'd like to offer special thanks to our NDCC Board Member Kim Wilson and former Board member and Women of Promise committee member Angela Scali, from Lbrands, who have made it possible for this event to once again be held at Lbrands. We truly appreciate and are grateful for the continued partnership we have enjoyed with Lbrands throughout the years. 
 
Women of Promise is our signature event filled with food, fun and celebration. This year's Presenting sponsors Lbrands, Honda, NiSource, AEP, White Castle, Vorys, Motorists Mutual, Nationwide and many more will help us to raise more than $230,000 in one evening! And supporters like Nothing Bundt Cakes, Brownie Points, Square One Salon and Spa, Thirty-One Gifts and our Bar Sponsors, Leading EDJE and Caster Connections will help make the evening an even greater success!  Our sponsors in conjunction with our donors make it possible for us to deliver the life-changing programming that we have provided for more than 37 years. 

Year after year women enter the Center in the midst of various transitions looking for support, guidance and encouragement. We celebrate these extraordinary women by naming our Woman of Promise. Our 2017 Woman of Promise has an inspiring story to share about reinvention, perseverance and resilience.  Her story demonstrates the impact of the work we do to assist our clients to find stability, security and success - you will not want to miss it!
 
Please join the NDCC Board of Trustees and me April 20th at Lbrand's as we celebrate Women of Promise 2017.  Your $75 ticket can be purchased here.
 
We look forward to celebrating a fun evening with you.
Sara Cotter, Committee  Chair and Board Member
Our Women of Promise Committee has been hard at work over the last several months to create a fantastic event for our 2017 guests!  
 
This year will signify our second year using a mobile bidding platform, Gesture.  This allows you, as paying guests and donors, to use your mobile phones to place bids, counter bids, follow items, and make donations - all from the palm of your hand!
 
The sooner you register with Gesture, the sooner you will have full access to our auction items - the opportunity to view and bid on LIVE and Silent packages.  You will be able to see all of the packages, create lists of favorites, and keep up-to-date with bidding via your mobile device. You will even be able to check out on your phone at Women of Promise!  Simply enter in your credit card information upon registration, and at the end of the evening receive a cart with all your 'winning items' that you can process with a few clicks of your finger.  No checkout lines - and you can be assured that all your information will be encrypted and secure!
 
Have I piqued your interest in buying your ticket now?  Here are a few reminders:
  • Purchase your ticket now to start viewing and bidding on LIVE and Silent auction packages today.  Take this opportunity to pre-register for the event from this link, by doing this you will not have to check-in the night of the event! 
  • Register your credit card to bypass the check-out line at the end of the night.
  • Come to Lbrands with your mobile phones charged and ready to bid!
  • Have fun! Our auction is known for the great packages we offer and this year is no exception! We have many new trips and baskets to excite one and all!
Lastly, I want to take a moment to thank all of my committee members. These committed, enthusiastic ladies - the majority of whom have been involved in this fantastic event for 8+ years - work hard to make this signature event a great success year after year.  We look forward to you joining us to make our 22nd Women of Promise event a big success!

Thank you Leading EDJE and Caster Connections who have generously offered to sponsor the bar for this year's Women of Promise!  Each guest will receive two drink tickets for the evening's celebration!
 
Thank you Brownie Points and Nothing Bundt Cakes for being the dessert sponsors for this year's Women of Promise!
