Dashaway Luncheon

The Dashaway Luncheon is a celebration of the impact our Clubs have in empowering young girls through our SMART Girls program.

Join the celebration for young lives transformed

Held at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, this event features a keynote address by a prominent speaker and inspirational remarks from our Clubs’ SMART Girl of the Year.

Additionally, each year, we honor women who’ve made significant contributions to our Clubs or SMART Girls with the Jan-Gee McCollam Champion of Young Women Award.

Save the date,  November 7, 2019

Empowering girls with leadership skills

The need to invest in, inspire and empower the next generation of young women leaders in our Clubs through SMART Girls has never been more important. SMART Girls is a health, life skills and empowerment program for girls ages 8 to 18.

Building esteem and fueling potential

Through the program, Club girls explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.

Join us on November 7, 2019

Help us honor the incredible contributions that women – past and present – have made to our Clubs and celebrate the young lives transformed by SMART Girls.
