"Women in Management reserved three tables at the 2010 Power of the Purse luncheon. Each table received $50 to pay it forward and contribute to women and girls in our community. Our three tables pooled our money and contributed the $150 to the Women in Management Oshkosh Chapter scholarship fund. This scholarship is available for a female student aspiring to a professional career. The student must be attending a local institution of higher education or have ties to the local community. Financial need, academic performance and community and extracurricular involvement are taken into consideration.
Thank you to the Women’s Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation for helping us advance our mission of promoting the status, authority and influence of managerial and entrepreneurial women.
To learn more about the Women in Management Oshkosh Chapter scholarship, please visit the Women in Management website at www.wimiwi.org and view Oshkosh Announcements."

"I received $100 at the luncheon and after long consideration of how it might have the most impact, I gave it to a woman in my church who was having problems with her chemo from breast cancer and who couldn't go back to work yet. "
"Several months after the luncheon, my friend Carol delivered a huge gift basket to my shop and asked me to facilitate getting in into the hands of a new mother in need. She and her daughter had purcased many of the items from newborn diapers to toys but had also hand made receiving blankets and a sweater set with hat and booties. After a little research the basket was given to the Labor of Love house in Oshkosh. "
