Leading Ladies Connecting, Discussing Health and Beauty

Donning their blue scarves, Leading Ladies and their guests gathered at Dave Burgess Studio 616 on March 24. The featured speakers were Andrea Abraham, founder and CEO of Woosh Beauty and Dr. Diana Bitner, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of True Women’s Health. Andrea treated guests to a Woosh Beauty makeup demonstration. Dr. Bitner presented on skincare and women’s health.

This passionate group of 34 amazing women exemplify the mission to create a social network of dynamic and engaged multi-generational ladies committed to support the Clark Promise through philanthropy, education, and community partnerships. The Leading Ladies have raised over $34,000 to support the Clark Foundation’s Benevolent Care Endowment, giving residents peace of mind knowing they will always have a home at Clark, despite unexpected financial challenges.

“What a wonderful night! It felt great to look around the room and see our vision for the Leading Ladies come to life. There was such good energy in the room. It’s exciting to see our mission to bring multi-generational women together to connect, learn together and give back coming to life, ” said Jill VanWyk, chair of Leading Ladies. Stay tuned for our next Leading Ladies event announcement!
