PLEASE JOIN US!
United Way Women's Leadership Council is holding its 11th annual fundraising breakfast to support women and ALICE families in Somerset County who are working towards financial stability.
Don't miss this opportunity to network with other local professional women and join in the fun of our silent auction - all while supporting projects that truly make a long term difference in the lives of women in need! According to a recently released United Way study, 769,900 of the state’s households are walking a financial tightrope, earning more than the federal poverty level but not enough to weather a crisis. We call this population ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER
Robin Gaby Fisher is a New York Times bestselling author who excels at telling haunting true-life stories of loss and recovery, inspiration and betrayal. In "After the Fire; A True Story of Friendship and Survival" she chronicles the courageous story of two Seton Hall University freshmen who rebuild lives forever scarred by the 2000 dorm fire. Her most recent book "The Woman Who Wasn't There: The True Story of an Incredible Deception" provides an intimate inside look at one woman’s spectacular fraud of 9/11 survivors. Fisher is a two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing and a member of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team at The Star-Ledger. She teaches Journalism at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey.
