Women-owned businesses contribute billions of dollars to the regional economy,
employ tens of thousands of local individuals, and provide much needed
services in their communities. "Just Desserts," an annual fundraiser,
celebrates these accomplishments and affords attendees the opportunity to meet
three women business owners and hear how WBDC helped them jumpstart their
business idea or take their business to the next level of success.

Sponsors include presenting partner Wells Fargo, showcase partner, Novo
Nordisk Inc., as well as Aramark, Campbell Soup Company, Harmelin Media,
Highmark, PECO, UPS and Verizon.

Over 250 friends of WBDC, who believe in our mission and support our goal of
economic justice for all women, are expected to attend.
