ABOUT THE GALA

For years, Independent Women’s Forum has hosted their Annual Awards Gala, one of the most sought after tickets in town. The gala, like IWF, is known for being as lighthearted and fun as it is elegant and inspiring. At the gala, IWF recognizes and celebrates true champions of women, who are dedicated defenders of democracy, liberty, and free markets.

 

It is an event that brings together influential leaders from all avenues. You’ll mix and mingle with everyone from U.S. Senators to business executives to primetime news hosts. And you’ll listen to inspiring speeches from some of the most respected leaders in the country. Ambassador Nikki Haley, television host Mike Rowe, and Fox News’ Harris Faulkner headlined last year’s gala. 

 

IWF’s Annual Awards Gala is an experience you’ll never forget. You won’t want to miss this celebration. Get your tickets today.
