Community Chest's Women's Leadership Luncheon Featured

This is a worthy event that I attend and wanted to share with you:

Trailblazing and Emerging Leaders Honored at The Community Chest's Women's Leadership Luncheon

(Eastern Bergen County, NJ; June 3, 2019) 

Women leaders from a range of disciplines were honored and recognized at The Community Chest's second annual Women's Leadership Luncheon and Scholarship Presentation, “Toasting the Elizabeths: Celebrating Women Leaders in Bergen County".  The leadership ceremony was held at The Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, New Jersey on May 16 and honored women leaders of the past and present and emerging ones.

The luncheon remembered three trailblazing women leaders in history from eastern Bergen County:  Elizabeth Cutter Morrow, the founding board chair of The Community Chest during the Great Depression, who lived in Englewood; Elisabeth Morrow Morgan, the founder of The Elisabeth Morrow School, who grew up in Englewood; and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a leader in the suffragette movement and a Tenafly, New Jersey resident. 

Dr. Shelly Wimpfheimer, executive director of The Community Chest, and Hanita Walia, president of The Elisabeth Morrow School board of trustees, welcomed everyone to the luncheon.  Margaret Silver, the great granddaughter of Elisabeth Cutter Morrow, provided a special greeting and discussed her family's involvement in the field of education as teachers.  Musicians from The Elisabeth Morrow School performed a special violin concert.
