Cary Magazine’s annual Women of Western Wake Forum honors the achievements of five local women who have had a strong impact on our corner of the world and beyond. This event highlights the efforts of these outstanding leaders and allows the rest of us to learn from their successful strategies.

IN RESPONSE TO HURRICANE FLORENCE, Cary Magazine will donate $50 of every VIP ticket purchased to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund. Administered by the NC Community Foundation, this fund supports long-term recovery in affected areas.
