Annual "Lunch with Friends" is Oct. 11!

It's official — the Annual "Lunch with Friends"
is Friday, October 11, 2019 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum Convention Center.

Still interested in being a sponsor or corporate table? We have you covered. Haven't lined up all of your table guests? We can help! Interested in being a table captain this year instead of a guest? We'll drop off your table captain packets!

2019 Table Captains, sponsor representatives, and honored guests recently joined Marita Dwight-Smith and Fort Wayne’s NBC co-anchor Linda Jackson on Aug. 7 for two exciting announcements and a sneak peek as to what's coming for everyone who attends the Annual "Lunch with Friends" event in early October.

"At year 15, Francine’s Friends continues to make a difference in the lives of women in our area, providing screening mammograms to those who might not have access due to lack of insurance, funds, transportation or other barriers," Marita Dwight-Smith, director of Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography, told guests. "The true success of the program lies in the countless donors and sponsoring organizations in our community. You are helping women in northeast Indiana receive life-saving mammography services. Thank you for your generosity and support!"

If you’re a table captain or sponsor, remember to secure your table seats of 10 by Sept. 13 and mail the table captain reservation card with your guests’ names, e-mail addresses, vegetarian option, and checks for $75.00. Checks should be made payable to “Francine’s Friends, Inc.” and mailed to: Francine’s Friends, Inc., c/o Parkview Foundation 10622 Parkview Plaza Drive, Fort Wayne, IN 46845.
