The YWCA believes those who have the least deserve the very best start in life.

2017 KIDS Korner Luncheon


The YWCA Central Alabama uses Swell to manage tables online and put the power in the table hosts' hands so they can focus on raising money for kids in need.  

 

The annual Kids Korner Luncheon benefits the KIDS Korner, a nationally-accredited child development program for children of homeless families. This luncheon is a not-to-miss tradition and a well-known event around town. With bright and fun decor, great food, and heart-tugging videos of children, there's no way you leave this luncheon without donating and fully understanding the mission and heart of the YWCA.
