The annual WOW event is held every spring in support of the mission of the Women & Girls’ Fund — to improve the quality of life for all women and girls in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott. The proceeds from the event benefit the grant awards made by the Fund every fall. Last year the Fund awarded over $45,000 to local organizations and causes.
Silvia Baldini will be this year’s guest speaker. She is a nationally recognized chef who became the first professional woman chef in Connecticut to win Chopped, the award winning show on Food Network. However, before changing careers mid life, she had a distinguished and award winning career as an Art Director on Madison Avenue.
