Celebrating 100 years of Empowering Women with the Woman's Club of White Plains

Did You Know: The YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester was first created by The Woman’s Club of White Plains. In 1929, the Woman’s Club of White Plains (referred to as the Contemporary Club) created club rooms, providing girls in White Plains a place to eat or cook lunch, read, rest, play piano, and dance.

On Saturday, November 5th, 2016 The Woman’s Club of White Plains will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a Gala of the Century at its home, the CV Rich Mansion.  Guests will be invited to tour the National and State Historic Registry-designated mansion during a pre-dinner reception that will be followed by an elegant dinner served in the ballroom to 250 guests.  Guests will include Westchester business, social, and community leaders who recognize the great importance of the Woman’s Club to the past and future of White Plains.
Funds raised through the Gala will be directed to the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester and to the restoration of the CV Rich Manson.  

The Woman’s Club of White Plains has supported organizations and empowered women for 100 years.  At the Gala of the Century the Woman’s Club will honor a local businesswoman, a corporate executive, and a non-profit agency all of whom embody their rich tradition of service to the community and support of women and girls.  

The three honors for the Gala of the Century:

Local Business Honoree:  Mary Jane Goldman, CEO, PIP Printing & Marketing Services

Corporate Honoree: Ruth H. Mahoney, President, KeyBank, Hudson Valley and Capital Region.
Non-Profit Honoree:  The YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester
