2021 Chrysalis Inspired Event
September 10 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm$35 – $75
INSPIRED is the Foundation’s annual fundraising and educational event. We present powerful speakers on meaningful topics, and learn from their wisdom and experience.
This year we are honoring the women first responders to the attack on the World Trade Center September 11, 2001.
Authors of “Women At Ground Zero: Stories of Courage and Compassion” Susan Hagen and Mary Carouba will share their experience as they felt compelled to tell the stories of the women first responders since the media was only showing the men.
In addition to a deeply powerful multimedia presentation of the events, they will be joined by Terri Tobin and Regina Wilson, two women law enforcement professionals who served at the forefront of the World Trade Center attacks and continue to serve today.
100% of proceeds from INSPIRED support girls and women in the Greater Des Moines community through Chrysalis after-school girls groups, high school peer mentoring, scholarships, and grants to local nonprofits serving girls and women.
