Unlocking the Treasure Chest
At our May 21 Dinner Meeting Linda Parker, President of the New Mexico Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs, will facilitate a panel discussion featuring Edna Lopez, COMPA Industries Inc., Karen Urbielewicz, Urbielewicz, Murphree CPAs, and a third panelist to be announced. The discussion will transform how you think about maximizing your charitable contributions, and your networking and marketing dollars.
Silent & Live Aucions!
A silent and live auction will be held at the May 21 meeting. All of the funds that are raised will go directly to the New Mexico Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, to be used for education, training, scholarships and loans for women entrepreneurs. All auction donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by tax law.
Commitments for the live auction include:
- Suite Night for up to 16 people at a New Mexico Scorpions hockey game
- 1-hour visit from Stanley the Scorpion for a birthday party or other kid’s function
- Party-in-a-Box at Madeleine’s Place, including a Limo, Wine Tasting, and Caterer
- Sparkling piece of jewelry from Beauchamp & Co.
This is a great way to promote your business or an associate’s business, and it is also a good time to purchase gifts. Learn how you can donate auction items or cash to support our philanthropic efforts on behalf of the foundation here. For questions regarding the auction, please email Roberta Salas.
