Community Celebration 2018

The Board of Directors for the Central California Women’s Conference (CCWC) honored 81 non-profits serving women and children with grants totaling $100,000. The organizations were recognized at a Community Celebration Grant Reception on Wednesday, April 11.

To date, CCWC has donated more than $1,000,000 to Valley nonprofits serving women and children. Funding has benefited recipients by providing an array of services ranging from mammograms to food, shelter, clothing, education and so much more.

“Supporting women and children in our community is an integral part of this conference and we are grateful to be able to contribute to organizations who focus their work on assisting their many and varied needs,” said Tricia Holt, CCWC Board Vice-President.

Now in its 31st year, more than 94,400 women have attended the Central California Women’s Conference — this year to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
