The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem is asking residents to use their social media networks to improve lives.

On Thursday, April 7, the non-profit organization will host the culmination of “The Fund Do Party,” the first-ever technology-driven fundraiser The Women’s Fund has held. It will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Biotech Place, Wake Forest Innovation Quarter, 575 N. Patterson Ave. The community will be able to network with members while raising funds and awareness to move women beyond poverty while competing for prizes.

Since earlier in March, The Women’s Fund has been keeping track of who is buying tickets, gathering donations and sharing with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The top fundraiser and person with the top social score will receive exciting prizes.

As of Tuesday evening,$8,030 had been raised.

Tickets for the high-tech cocktail party are $30 and include, food, wine and beer, as well as entertainment. Proceeds from the event will go toward creating more education efforts in the community to help address the causes of social issues impacting women and girls in Forsyth County.

Systematic issues have been identified in The Women’s Fund report, “A Second Look Through a Gender Lens: The Economic Security of Women and Girls in Forsyth County 2015.” “For example, our report shows that poverty has increased since our 2010 report for women in Forsyth County,” according to the fund’s website.

Since 2006, The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem has been working to ensure women and girls throughout the area have equal opportunities, skills and resources to be self-sufficient and contributing members of the community.
