Join Us!

Don't miss this third annual morning gathering filled with inspiration and networking for hundreds of philanthropic women in northern New Jersey who are committed to creating a positive impact in our communities.

Proceeds from this event build stability and financial opportunity for ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) – women and families in our region who work hard in essential jobs, yet still struggle make ends meet. With your help, more fragile ALICE families can access quality child care for their children and pursue education programs that advance their earning potential.

Powerhouse Guest Speaker

Denice Torres, a highly successful and inspiring speaker, is passionate about leading with love, integrity, and optimism. Torres has received much acclaim throughout her career, including the prestigious Honor award recognizing her focus on diversity and inclusion in the workplace during her 13 year tenure at Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems, Inc.; Woman of the Year by Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association; and Working Mother of the Year by Working Mother magazine. She has also been featured in several publications, including Pharmaceutical Executive, Latino Leaders, Latina Style, Hispanic Executive, and Women Working.

Denice, a proud parent of a 13-year old daughter with special needs, serves on the board of the Midland Corporation, a nonprofit organization focused on meeting the educational and developmental needs of individuals with disabilities. Denice is also preparing to publish her first book in early 2018.

Honoring a Community Pillar

We are so proud to be presenting our 2018 Women In Philanthropy Award to Ronnie Weyl, Executive Director at Raritan Valley Community College Foundation. Because of Ronnie's work with United Way, the ALICE scholarship fund was established at Raritan Valley Community College to help ALICE students who need to overcome financial obstacles in order to complete their education.
