To celebrate 10 years of Women’s Leadership Initiative, the United Way of East Central Iowa combined the annual Women’s Luncheon and Power of the Purse into one event, Purses & Plates. The event was held on Thursday, July 21 at the Cedar Rapids Veteran’s Memorial Building and included dinner, a speaker, and a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting the Women’s Leadership Initiative.

ASAC’s Heart of Iowa program is a recipient agency of the Women’s Leadership Initiative that focuses on women’s health. ASAC receives $50,000 that helps to fund the position of Care Coordinator at Heart of Iowa. This position assists patients in navigating the medical and mental health systems and access support services.
