The Center for Women’s 20 Anniversary Celebration was a fabulous affair. Women of all ages and walks of life flocked to Founders Hall at the Charles Towne Landing for a beautiful evening of fine food and drink, live entertainment, a silent auction, and great company.

Guests mingled in the main room or lounged in chairs on the screened porch before partaking in the incredible spread provided by Fork Catering. While the men in attendance gravitated toward the station featuring bites of steak, many party goers bonded over the lobster macaroni and cheese or the custom prepared crepes.

The silent auction was a big hit, and everyone filtered inside to be welcomed by Center for Women executive director Jennet Robinson Alterman and president Doretha Walker.

A celebratory champagne toast was followed by live entertainment by a local dance troupe, and everyone was reluctant to head out into the fall evening. Guests lingered on the porch or outside on the boardwalk, and everyone agreed it was a night to be remembered.

The Center for Women was founded in 1990 with the mission of supporting and connecting women throughout the Lowcountry by providing educational programs, professional support, and counseling. Today they have reached and enhanced the lives and businesses of over 70,000 local women.
