WCF Seeking Candidates for Tampa Bay Woman of the Year

The Westchase Charitable Foundation is looking for candidates for its Woman of the Year award.

And winning the title entails all the candidates to fundraise for a great cause.

The Eighth Annual Tampa Bay Woman of the Year fundraiser to support the Westchase Charitable Foundation (WCF) will take place on Friday, March 2, at the Sheltair jet hangar from 6:30–11:30 pm. The event will feature a “Jetsetter” theme and include live music, delicious food from some of the best local restaurants, complimentary drinks all night, free valet service, a tour of private jets, networking, an exclusive VIP lounge with special perks, a 50/50 raffle, silent and live auctions and more!

The WCF is currently seeking candidates to compete for the 2018 title.

What does it mean to be a candidate? Over a dozen women invite friends to attend the event, collect silent and live auction items, obtain in-kind donations, sell sponsorships, and host their own mini fundraisers over an eight-week period. The top four women to raise the most money and/or donations are announced live on stage in front of more than 400 attendees. The winner receives a featured billboard, a crown and sash, one year of free hair care, a convertible ride in the 2018 Westchase Christmas Parade, a celebratory dinner for eight, gift certificates and more. More important, each woman can say they had a small part in helping WCF raise funds to continue helping deserving families.

Any women interested in serving as a candidate should attend the Kickoff Event at Donatello’s on Thursday, Jan. 4 at 6:30 p.m.

The WCF is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that provides financial assistance to Tampa Bay families that have children battling a serious illness or that have faced a devastating family tragedy. The foundation relies completely on fundraising events, like the Tampa Bay Woman of the Year, as well as private and in-kind donations to help raise funds for its mission. One hundred percent of WCF event proceeds go directly to helping families most in need.
