Circle of Women Table Captains
To fill a room with 1,000 women and men, we recruit table captains who commit to filling a table of ten. Through these individual efforts, combined with sponsorship dollars, we hope to raise more than $250,000 over one lunch hour!
Please become a table captain at this year’s event. We promise you and your nine guests a memorable program and a rewarding experience. At the conclusion of the luncheon, your guests will be asked to make a pledge of at least $100 to YWCA Madison. Contributions may be paid by check, credit card, or quarterly billings.

It is an inspiring and fun event. At the end of the luncheon guests are asked to make a pledge of at least $100 to the YWCA Madison.
