    Evoke Style, Stuyvesant Plaza's newest women's boutique, hosted a casual evening of networking and fashion to support the Women's Fund. Owner Sandra Dollard (pictured second from the left below) provided shoppers with delicious refreshments and a 10 percent discount on all purchases. At the end of the evening, the Fund received a donation of 10 percent of total sales during the event.

    The Women's Fund of the Capital Region is grateful for Sandra's generosity and for the opportunity to introduce Evoke customers to our programs.

    Save them from bullying.

    The Women’s Fund presented best-selling author Rachel Simmons, nationally-recognized expert on bullying among girls.

    Bullying among girls hurts today and impacts tomorrow. That is why The Women’s Fund brought to the Capital Region Rachel Simmons, New York Times bestselling author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls (2003) and the new The Curse of the Good Girl.

    Now Is Not the Time to Retreat
    The Glen Sanders Mansion, Scotia, NY

    The 260 people who attended this Key4Women Forum learned why “Now Is Not the Time to Retreat” from either your business or personal financial life. They were motivated and inspired by Nadja Piatka’s amazing story of taking a company out of her kitchen and creating a multimillion dollar food company. Nadja made her dream come true. Armed only with an idea and a $100 investment, she became an international supplier to Subway, McDonald's, Giant, Wegmans and other nutrition-conscious customers.
