Denise-GarnerWe’re proud to announce that Denise Garner will be honored as the 2015 Woman of the Year in Philanthropy at the 17th annual Power of the Purse luncheon on Wednesday, September 30.

In 2011, Denise founded FeedFayetteville.org, whose mission is to feed a largely invisible population of hungry people by teaching them how to cook nutritious meals from locally grown produce. Then in 2012, she started FeedCommunities.org as the parent organization for Feed Fayetteville. Feed Communities seeks to duplicate the successful Fayetteville program in other cities.

Her past and present nonprofit board positions are too numerous to mention, although they run from the northwest corner of the state to Little Rock and beyond. Social justice, health care, education, political and arts-related causes are her focus.

Join us at the 2015 Power of the Purse – Little Rock!

The Power of the Purse luncheon will be held on September 30 at the Little Rock Marriott from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Reservations are $100 per person or $1,000 for a table of 10.
