A Gathering of Girlfriends

Let's gather for a wonderful evening of fun and friendship as we raise funds for improved and innovative breast cancer research!

With 500 women of all ages, we celebrate our girlfriends, our health and our shared commitment to finding a cure during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A behind-the-scenes and interactive Vera Bradley experience is featured at the Vera Bradley Design Center. Guests savor creative culinary selections and fine cocktails featuring the best of Fort Wayne's caterers and restaurants. With an incredible silent auction and an exclusive sneak peak at the newest Vera Bradley colors, styles and trends, our guests come back again and again for this unforgettable "party with a purpose."
