VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY - Rosé Day in the CWE

 May 19, 12-6pm 

www.rosedaystl.com

Calling all volunteers -  Contact Rosé Day STL staff  for volunteer opportunities using the contact form at www.rosedaystl.com, 

It's the first annual Rosé Day!  It's a Rosé wine get-together that celebrates everyone's favorite pink drink -- while also giving recognition to non-profit women's organizations doing amazing work in our community. 

 A group of community-minded women (and a few men) have signed on to help us make this event a huge success. Working together in our inaugural year, we'll bring much deserved attention to 10 non-profit organizations  supporting and empowering women each and every day.

These groups are providing housing, education and healthcare, a pathway out of a violent relationship or towards a new and exciting opportunity. Because of the work of the 10 organizations selected to participate this year, women's lives are being forever changed for the better. 

So on May 19th, as folks raise their glasses, we'll be raising awareness. Guests will sip and stroll through the Central West End, and learn about the meaningful work of our partner groups in a fun and uplifting way!
