The Institute for Women in Politics is hosting a holiday luncheon on Friday, Dec. 1, at 12 p.m. at Jackson’s Steakhouse in downtown Pensacola. Guest speaker will be Mark Singel, former Governor and Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania and brother of Institute Vice President Myra Van Hoose.
Gov. Singel’s topic will be “Fighting the Good Fight.” In a preview of his talk, Gov. Singel wrote, ““Amid seemingly endless stories of bad sexual behavior, there is one group that has shown what it means to lead – women. Democrat and Republican women all over the country have already sent a simple message – enough is enough! This has implications for the 2018 elections but it has long term positive consequences for civility in our nation.”
The luncheon is an IWP members-exclusive event. Reservations are $20 and can be made at iwpflorida.org. Anyone who is not a member may attend by submitting their paid membership at iwpflorida.org prior to making their reservation. Reservation deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 28.
