CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KWWL) - The Cedar Falls Business and Professional Women will be hosting their annual Salute to Women event virtually this year due to the pandemic.
Sponsored by Care Initiatives, the event helps raise money for scholarships for non-traditional women students. The 2019 Salute to Women event allowed CF-BPW to award four $1,000 scholarships.
This year, the guest speaker will be Becky Guinn, the first female factory manager at John Deere Waterloo Works. She'll present "Self-Confidence is a Super Power" during the 45-minute fundraiser on Facebook Live.
Past scholarship recipients and four past Woman of Year honorees will speak or be featured before, during, or after the event.
Salute to Women begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20. It's free to view the event but donations are encouraged to help CF-BPW continue the scholarship program. Donations can be made by clicking here.
