GREENWICH, Conn. -- Women of Vision Fairfield County will host its annual Mother's Day boutique and luncheon on Wednesday, May 7, in Greenwich.
Women of Vision Fairfield County will host the boutique and lunch, featuring a presentation by this year’s Sierra Leone travelers.
This is the final educational event for the year, and will be held at the Stanwich Congregational Church in Greenwich. The boutique will open at 10:30 a.m., and the luncheon will begin at noon.
The boutique vendors include: Elegant Pots & Petals, Designing Women, Nantucket Sweater, Flamenco, Oliphant, Tara Wilson Designs, Collared Greens and more.
A portion of the proceeds from the boutique will benefit Women of Vision Fairfield County projects in the United States and abroad.
All of the net proceeds from this event will benefit Women of Vision’s local partner, Inspirica, in Stamford, and the Strong Women Strong World initiative, improving the health and well-being of women, girls and their families in countries identified as the most difficult and dangerous places to be a woman today.
"Each year, WoVFC sends a team of members to visit one of their international projects. In January, 10 women traveled to Sierra Leone to see the work being done to support maternal and child health in a country where the mortality rate for women and infants is the highest in the world," said a press release.
"The travelers included Debbie Reynolds, the founder of Greenwich Bible Study who was honored this year by Women of Vision at their benefit lunch in February. In addition to visiting World Vision sponsored children, the women traveled to rural health clinics and hospitals and even had a meeting with the First Lady of Sierra Leone, Sia Koroma."
Women of Vision is a volunteer ministry of World Vision that "educates, inspires, and equips women to use their God-given resources in compassionate, mutually life-changing service to impoverished and oppressed women and children worldwide," according to the release.
There is a $30 charge for lunch that will be taken at the door. There is no charge to visit the boutique. Kindly RSVP for lunch to Nina Gustin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-661-9787.
The Stanwich Congregational Church is located at 202 Taconic Road in Greenwich. For more information on the group or the event, visit www.worldvision.org.
