The luncheon features keynote speaker Ashley Rhodes-Courter, New York Times Best Selling Author, social worker, advocate and foster parent. Ashley’s personal experiences growing up in foster care and education give her a unique expertise on how we can improve outcomes for children, families and youth. Similarly, Ashley is a tremendous inspiration because she has been able to turn her pain into power and productivity for herself and countless others.

Tickets are $45 per person until October 19. Table sponsorships are available for $500. Free parking will be available in the UWL Ramp (Level 3). Register online at or call 608-780-5710.

The Women’s Fund will also be announcing the 2017 recipient of the Roberta Zurn Award for outstanding female leadership at luncheon. Attendees are invited to bring new pillows and pillow cases to be donated to the La Crosse County Human Services Department for children entering foster care.
