17th Annual Spring Gala

Women of Wisdom 2018 Honors Liz Chace

Thursday, May 10, 2018, WaterFire Arts Center
5:30 p.m. – VIP reception
6:30 p.m. – Speaking program and auction
7:30 p.m. – Celebration and dinner 

Please join Honorary Chairs: Sophia Founder, Sister Mary Reilly, RSM and past Women of Wisdom honorees: Suzanne Murray, Joan Wernig Sorensen and Anne Szostak, and our event co-chairs: Suzanne Magaziner, Sara Shea McConnell and Joan Wernig Sorensen.

This wonderful event is an opportunity to support – and highlight – the important mission of Sophia: Changing the lives of girls from low income homes through an empowering middle school education.

We are also thrilled to recognize and honor Liz. Like Sister Mary, Liz believes in creating opportunity, especially for women and children.

From her days as a social worker fighting for equality, to the years she spent founding and building what is now one of the largest residential real estate firms in Rhode Island, to the commitment she has made as one of our community’s most generous philanthropic leaders, Liz believes everyone should have a shot at success.

Please reach out to Joy Fox ( for Gala sponsorship information.
