On this Saturday, May 6th, The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas will partner with local restaurants for Dine Out to Make a Difference. It’s an all day event, where a percentage of each participating restaurant’s sales will be donated to the WFA. These funds will help support programs like Girls of Promise and Women of Promise, along with grants and research to improve the lives of women and girls in Arkansas through economics, workforce, education, health, politics, and leadership.

“This is the second year of our dine out event. Last year’s success helped us connect with our community and tell the story of our mission which is to change the status of girls and women in Arkansas by economically empowering them. The support we received from our local community restaurants and their patrons was tremendous and we are so happy to be partnering with them again,” said Anna Beth Gorman, WFA’s executive director.

From the WFA: The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas believes that when women are educated and economically secure, their children are better educated, better nourished, and in better health; moreover, these benefits reverberate beyond their families to include entire communities. The WFA is the only not-for-profit, statewide organization with the sole focus of developing the professional, economic, and philanthropic potential of Arkansas women and girls by ensuring they have the necessary resources, tools, and knowledge to reach their full potential.
