Million Dollar Woman Gala

10 Years of the Million Dollar Women Symposium

Since 2005, this annual symposium has showcased “Million Dollar Women”- those women who have started or led companies with gross revenues over a million dollars. Our symposium is designed to motivate and empower women to aspire to success in their field. Past panelists have shared the challenges and difficulties they faced and how they achieved their success and overcame obstacles.

It’s going to be a fantastic evening which includes a “reunion” of prior million dollar women participants. Our keynote speaker for the evening is Nancy Frates, of the Ice Bucket Challenge and ALS Advocate.

Join us as we celebrate 10 years of Million Dollar success stories!
