Everyone here at The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio gets excited to organize our annual Keyholder event and fundraiser because we love to celebrate the women and girls who have made a difference in our lives. And this year’s headliner has been making that difference for years. She’s not just a comedian, actor, mother, humanitarian and talk show host – she’s Whoopi, and we couldn’t think of anyone more qualified to join us for this year’s Keyholder, Friday, June 29, at Nationwide Arena! The event will feature an evening of storytelling, compelling grant partner stories, touching tributes, and, of course, an interview with our iconic guest.

Tickets are on sale now for $50 each and all proceeds will help provide grants to non-profits that promise social change for women and girls, grow women as philanthropists and increase awareness of the needs of women and girls in our community. Only 7% of national foundation dollars go to programs that specifically support women and girls and we want that to change.


If you’d like to join us for a fun, moving and inspirational evening (even better if you can bring your mother/daughter along!), you can purchase your tickets at Ticket Master. To learn more about the event or The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, visit our website .
