A group of dedicated supporters raised money to support Women’s Empowerment Programming in San Ramon, Costa Rica at L’Escale Restaurant in Greenwich, CT. Ready To Empower, a non-profit focusing on women’s empowerment in developing economies, was able to bring people together with the power and cohesiveness surrounding the message “Women’s Lives Matter!” Founder Amanda Ready lead the event with a Fund-A-Need paddle raise, a video, plus donations of silent auction items. Hundreds of women benefit from the work Ready To Empower does.
