Woman of the Year Gala benefiting Les Femmes du Monde
The evening begins with a VIP cocktail reception followed by a three course seated dinner, speaker and presentation of the Woman of the Year.
The Woman of the Year is a supporter who has helped make this organization and many nonprofits successful, embracing education for members and youth, while at the same time, helping others in our community.
Woman of the Year: Dr. Sandra “Sandi” Chapman
2018 Beneficiaries: Proceeds from the event benefit two beneficiaries: The Child Life Program at Children’s HealthSM Children’s Medical Center and the Global Young Leaders Program of the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.
The Child Life Program’s primary goal is to minimize the impact of illness on a child’s normal growth and emotional and cognitive development. This involves establishing supportive relationships with patients and families and providing them with developmentally-appropriate information that helps them prepare for, understand and cope with their healthcare experiences.
The Global Young Leaders and Education Programs at the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth seeks to educate students and teachers on how international events affect their lives, their communities, and their country. The goal is to empower students to become effective, active global citizens and leaders in the community. Celebrating its 14th anniversary in 2018, this program has impacted more than 1 million students and trained more than 8,000 teachers since its inception in 2004."
Mission Statement: Since its beginning in 1961, Les Femmes du Monde is celebrating its 58th year of service. The mission is to provide funds for the support of the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas Child Life Program and the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth International Education Program.
