Women of Vision - 2019 Gala

Join In Her Shoes Foundation for our Annual 2019 Gala, Women of Vision.

Dear IHSF Members, Volunteers, Friends, Community Business Partners and Supporters, 

We would like to invite you to attend our In Her Shoes Foundation, The Women of Vision Gala on Friday, October 11th 7-10PM at the Park Ridge Country Club. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year which will be a night filled with entertainment, fashion show, a live painter, food, drinks and most importantly we will be celebrating and supporting our charity accomplishments. Enjoy the night as you listen to our students who participate in our Ready Set Women Academy Program and meet the exceptionally inspiring winners of Women Who Change the World Leadership Awards.


We need your help and would LOVE if you can share with friends and colleagues. This is a BIG deal…

In Her Shoes Foundation would like to recognize women who are making a difference within their communities,

Do you know a woman who has dedicated her life to making a positive impact on society by empowering women and girls?

Is this woman impacting our Chicago community and upholding the core values and mission of In Her Shoes Foundation (being empathetic, intentional, authentic and inclusive)?

If so, please nominate this woman for an opportunity to potentially be recognized by our organization during our annual Gala, October 2019.
