Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GREENWICH, Conn. - Feb 13, 2017 - Patron tickets and underwriting opportunities are now available for the 12th Annual Sole Sisters Luncheon scheduled for April 25, at Greenwich County Club.

In a letter to Patrons, 2017 Luncheon co-chairs Jamie Eisenberg, and Diane Viton wrote, “Each year the Sole Sisters select an area of concern, learn about the issue and then raises funds through our spring luncheon to invest in local services. This year the Sole Sisters are proud to support the Greenwich United Way’s leadership efforts in supporting community solutions in the areas of education, financial stability and health”.
Last Wednesday there was a planning meeting to discuss logistics, vendor boutique updates and options for this year’s keynote speaker. During the meeting Greenwich United Way Board Chair, Karen Keegan, announced Jill Weiner and Jan Marchand as the newest Lifetime members of the Greenwich United Way Sole Sisters.
