How to Become a Yellow Rose Luncheon Sponsor

The 21st Annual Women of Achievement Yellow Rose Luncheon, sponsored by the Zonta Club of Jefferson City Foundation, will be held Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.  Zonta is an international organization committed to empowering women through service and advocacy.  Our local Zonta Chapter has made a commitment to the advancement of women by awarding Second Chance Scholarships to assist local women who want to advance or start new careers. The Second Chance Scholarship Program has changed the lives of many local women. We have awarded over $273,500 in scholarships to date!

As our 21st Yellow Rose Luncheon Celebration Speaker, Erin Cox exemplifies a woman who refuses to accept limitations in pursuit of her dreams.  Erin is a creative and energetic motivational speaker, on-air radio personality, and corporate consultant and trainer. Erin earned a degree from Missouri State University where she set a University record by winning the public speaking competition 4 consecutive years. After college, she was contracted by to travel the country and present to high school students the importance of pursuing higher education. In 2008, Erin started her own training company. Throughout her 18 years of experience, she has facilitated thousands of seminars across the world. Her varied client list ranges from small, not-for-profit organizations to international Fortune 500 companies. We invite you to be inspired by her unique message, and leave the Yellow Rose Luncheon feeling motivated, confident and empowered to pursue your dreams without yielding to limitations, whether external or self-imposed.

In addition, we will honor a “Lifetime Achievement Winner”. We have seventeen nominees who will also be honored for their contributions and achievements, and two of these women will be chosen as Zonta’s “Women of Achievement.” Please join us as we celebrate “The Woman without Limits.”

There is also an opportunity to promote and sell your business wares at the “Zonta Showcase”, which has been rebranded this year as a retail event, located in the atrium of the Capitol Plaza Hotel from 12-4 p.m, following the luncheon.  Space is limited, so please contact Joan Prenger (573) 690-6891 or Mandy Thomas (573) 694-5084 to reserve a space at this premier event!
