Annual luncheon to feature philanthropist inspiration

Former Hoosier to speak about giving, mentoring and serving

ANDERSON — Pam Jones said she hopes to inspire women to use their talents and become more active in philanthropy.

That is one of the reasons she is chairing this year’s Women in Philanthropy luncheon on Friday.

“It is encouraging to see how many credentials all the different women have earned and can share and how many different ways there are to have an impact,” she said.

This marks the ninth annual luncheon sponsored by the Madison County Community Foundation Women’s Fund Endowment. The theme for this year’s event will be "Philanthropy in Bloom." Organizers hope to create a new $100,000 endowment through Century Club gifts to help fund services for women and children.

“The committee wanted to do something more lasting,” Jones said of the new endowment. “It is going to take a couple of years to do, but obviously every gift helps.”

This year’s event speaker is Maggy Siegel. She is a graduate of Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and owns a consulting firm in New York City. Siegel grew up in Michigan City and has held executive positions with Coach, Chanel, Tiffany and Dylan’s Candy.

Committed to helping others, Siegel serves as the vice president of the Board of Cancer Care, Inc., a nonprofit that provides free social services to cancer patients, and she volunteers as a mentor for young mothers trying to balance their work and family lives.

The event will be at 11:30 a.m. on Friday at the Anderson Country Club, 602 North Shore Blvd. Tickets for the event are $25 per person and are available through the Madison County Community Foundation at 644-0002.

Funding raised by the foundation helps to support local organizations including Dove Harbor, Bountiful Harvest Ministries, The Riley Hospital Children’s Foundation, Exchange Club Family Resource Center, Cradles to Careers, Angel Food Ministries, Madison County CAPE and the Madison County Education Coalition.
