A Recap of WGA's 20th Anniversary Events


20th Anniversary Founder and Legacy Luncheon
September 17, 2021 | The Cummer Museum

20th Anniversary Founder and Legacy Luncheon
To kick off its celebrations, WGA hosted a luncheon to honor the Founding Members who created the vision for WGA and the Legacy Members who help to ensure our future. We also celebrated Courtenay Wilson, one of WGA's Founders, with a WGA Legacy Membership.
2021 Annual Meeting
October 20, 2021 | UNF Herbert University Center
2021 Annual Meeting
In addition to our normal business, we celebrated 20 years as an organization. We debuted our 20th Anniversary video, celebrated the work of the 68 agencies we have funded over two decades (and brought them all up on stage!), and talked about where we want to be in 10 years from now.

20th Anniversary "Stronger Together" Celebration
March 24, 2022 | Rethreaded, Delores Barr Weaver Campus for Hope

20th Anniversary "Stronger Together" Event
WGA celebrated our 20th anniversary in style at our "Stronger Together" event. Members and guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, conversation, and opportunities to shop at Rethreaded's retail store. The rain let up enough for us to socialize in the outdoor patio area, and we heard an update from Rethreaded's Founder and President Kristin Keen.
