Teresa Woodruff was an honorary co-chair at the Girl Power Benefit Luncheon for the Young Women's Leadership Charter School of Chicago last Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency. The event honors women and leadership and highlights those who have made great efforts to be future leaders.
Penny Pritzker, the CEO of Pritzker Realty Group and National Finance Chair of of President Obama's 2008 campaign, was the keynote speaker this year. YWLCS is approaching its tenth year and the luncheon raised money to support the school.
The Oncofertility Saturday Academy students showcased projects to those in attendance, including one on HPV/cervical cancer and another fertilization - showing both the basic and clinical aspects of science.
"It was an empowering event," Woodruff said. She was proud of the OSA girls who showed they had learned a lot through the partnership between Northwestern University and YWLCS.
