You Are Invited!

While summer is upon us, the staff at The Sophia Way are well into fall planning mode.

Our Way Home Luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, October 15 at the Hyatt Regency and promises to be an important and inspiring day.

This year, the luncheon will have a different look and feel. We expect nearly 700 folks just like you to attend our complimentary event to learn firsthand from the women we serve, volunteers, supporters and friends how your generosity impacts more than 1000 lives every year! 

How Can You Help?
  • Host a Table – fill a table of ten with family, friends, colleagues
  • Become a Pacesetter – those diehard supporters who are willing to commit to a pre-event gift of $100 or more per month to receive special recognition at the event
  • Consider a Sponsorship – perhaps your church, group, or business would like the marketing benefits while supporting The Sophia Way’s work to end homelessness
  • Simply Sign Up to attend! 

Our Way Home Luncheon is The Sophia Way’s primary income-generating event, helping us raise nearly one-quarter of our annual fundraising goal. Please join us to be a part of our life-saving mission to help women experiencing homelessness in our community!

With appreciation,
Alisa Chatinsky
Interim Executive Director
Thank You to Our Luncheon Sponsors!
