Tampa Bay Woman Of The Year 2016 says
Join us for delicious food by multiple local restaurants, cocktails, networking, live & silent auctions, the crowning of the 2016 Tampa Bay Woman of the Year, and an unbelievable performance by The Black Honkeys. They have been playing together since 2001 and were voted “Best Local Band in the Tampa Bay Area” 3 years running, in Creative Loafing’s “Best of the Bay” Reader’s Choice Awards.

14 candidates will compete for the title of the 2016 Tampa Bay Woman of Year. For 9 weeks leading up to the event, the candidates will help the Westchase Charitable Foundation obtain sponsorship, silent auction items, and in-kind donations. The woman to bring in the most funds is the Tampa Bay Woman of the Year and will be announced live at the event!

*About the Westchase Charitable Foundation*
The Tampa Bay Woman of the Year benefits the Westchase Charitable Foundation (WCF) - a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides financial assistance to children battling serious illness or that have been faced with a devastating family tragedy.

The Foundation relies completely on fundraising events, as well as private and in-kind donations to help raise funds for its mission. The WCF is unique since most of its operating expenses are funded privately, so nearly 100% of the net proceeds go directly to helping families most in need. No board member is paid and volunteer all their time.

The Foundation began in 2004 to help a local family with an 8 year old child battling terminal brain cancer, and its growth is due entirely to the countless supporters throughout our region. Since its inception, the WCF has provided over $300,000 in direct financial grants to families across the Tampa Bay area. And while the Foundation has its roots in Westchase, over 90% of the actual grant recipients reside outside of the Westchase area.
