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.

Karen Bilowith, member of the Steering Committee of The Women's Fund, gratefully accepted a check for $5,000 -- $2,500 from the registrations for this event and $2,500 from Key4Women.

Thank you to KeyBank for selecting The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region to benefit from the Key4Women Forum. This selection follows KeyBank’s long-standing support of The Women’s Fund, including as a gold-level annual sponsor for 2009-2010.
