WHWF Luncheon


WHWF is delighted to announce the 2017 benefit luncheon speaker: Glennon Doyle Melton. Melton is the author of New York Times Bestsellers Carry On, Warrior and Love Warrior and the founder of Momastery.com – where more than 7 million readers a week experience her shameless and laugh-out-loud funny essays about marriage, motherhood, faith, addiction, recovery, and serving the marginalized. Melton is also the creator and president of Together Rising, a non-profit organization that has revolutionized on-line giving through “Love Flash Mobs” and has connected countless families in need with millions of dollars in critical resources.

The 2017 luncheon will be held at the Spokane Convention Center on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Table captains who have reserved a table can continue to fill their tables until registration closes May 12.
