The Trusteeship hosted the 2017 Leadership and Education Fund Annual Award Luncheon at the gorgeous Virginia Country Club to honor TWO amazing Southern California Women Leaders with our Adrienne Hall Emerging Leadership Award, and $5,000 grants!
The beautiful Virginia Country Club, is centrally located in Long Beach, and was the perfect setting to gather with your fellow members to celebrate women who are making a difference in our Southern California communities.

A bit about the Leadership & Education Fund
The Leadership and Education Fund for the Betterment of Women, Inc. (LEF) was established in 1999 as a 501(c) (3) charitable organization.
Donations to this organization are tax-deductible and it is also able to receive contributions from other entities to fund programs within its charitable purpose.
The goal is for the fund to serve as an endowment for The Trusteeship’s philanthropic endeavors. Two awards have been created to meet these goals: The Meredith MacRae Empowerment Award The Adrienne Hall Emerging Leadership Award
