WHF is excited to conclude the celebration of its 40th anniversary with this very special reception.  Please join us as we look back at the first 40 years including memorabilia from different times in the organization’s history and attendance by past presidents, including “founding mothers” and their early contemporaries.  As part of the event, we will honor a diverse group of 40 under 40 professionals in the fields of housing and finance. We will also look forward to WHF’s future.  Throughout the event, the lovely museum will be open only to event attendees. At that time, the museum will feature a special exhibit of a woman artist: Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling.  In addition to honoring 40 under 40 and looking back on the past years of success for WHF and its members, we will also thank the outgoing boards of WHF and the WHF Foundation and formally install the new boards of both organizations.

Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on exciting silent auction items including vacation destinations, local goods and services, and sports memorabilia.

All net proceeds of this event, including the silent auction, benefit the WHF Foundation and support its partners.

Do you have a vacation home, tickets to the theater or a sports event, artwork or other memorabilia, jewelry, needlework?  Can you donate a gift certificate to your favorite restaurant, create a basket of wine and goodies or provide local goods and services?  The Silent Auction will be the perfect opportunity to make your donation and raise needed funds.
