WHEREAS, Bonnie DiCarlo and JoAnn Forrester founded Celebrate & Share in 2002 to raise funds for organizations that focus on the needs of women and children, and to highlight the many achievements of women in the Greater Pittsburgh area, and throughout the State of Pennsylvania; and,

 

WHEREAS, Celebrate & Share hosts two signature events each year to help support their cause: the Women of Achievement Awards in March, and the Annual Breakfast in August; and,

 

WHEREAS, Celebrate & Share will hold its 7th Annual Breakfast at the Rivers Club on August 26, 2015, to celebrate one of the greatest achievements in the ongoing fight for gender equality: the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which granted women the right to vote; and,

 

WHEREAS, the 7th Annual Breakfast also features Women of Achievement, Spirit of 19th Amendment award winners Connie Portis, Publisher and President of Connie Portis Enterprises and Jann Chirdon, Political Strategist; and,

 

WHEREAS, proceeds from the event will benefit the Pennsylvania Women’s Hall of Achievement, which was established to honor women of achievement, educate the public about the accomplishments of women, and to establish educational exhibits that highlight the role women have played in the home, in politics, in the arts, and in our communities; and,
