Each spring, hundreds of area women and men gather at the annual Wonder of Women (WOW) event in support of the mission of Main Street Community Foundation’s 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 over $53,000 was awarded to local organizations and causes.
Lori Borgman is the guest speaker this year. She is a newspaper columnist that claims that America’s most renewable resource is stress. She offers wit and insight on family and culture and has been described as “Mark Twain without the cigar.”
Seats for this year’s event are $60 and are now available by sending a check or cash to Main Street Community Foundation, P.O. Box 2702, Bristol, CT 06010. For more information, please visit www.MainStreetFoundation.org
