Cary Magazine’s annual Woman of Western Wake Luncheon honors the achievements and successes of local women who are outstanding leaders and have a strong impact on our corner of the world, and beyond. This event not only honors their efforts, but also empowers the rest of us by sharing some of the philosophies that make these women successful.
As a registered guest of the luncheon, you will enjoy an immersive experience that brings together a community of people who truly value the advancement of women in all aspects of our society. The event will feature:
- 3-course lunch prepared by The Umstead’s award-winning culinary team
- Panel discussion with the 2017 Women of Western Wake honorees
- Extended networking opportunities to make new connections
- Headshot Café offering FREE professional headshots
- Complimentary valet parking
Following the event, registered guests will have access to the post-event attendee list — a tool designed to help this community stay engaged and well connected.
Finally, to celebrate this 10th annual Women of Western Wake Luncheon, Cary Magazine will also be recognizing one past honoree as the recipient of the WOWW Award for Lifetime Achievement during this year’s event.
