Let’s Do Lunch

St. Louis' brightest leaders want to host YOU for lunch!


On Wednesday, August 7, nearly 30 members of United Way's Women's Leadership Society will host lunch at restaurants across the region. Don’t miss the opportunity to mingle, network and expand your professional connections over lunch at one of these small group gatherings.


All lunches take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. To help accommodate everyone's schedules, a few women will host a happy hour in place of lunch. These select hosts have an asterisk (*) after their names with details under the restaurant names.


To register, simply select the lunch or happy hour you'd like to attend by clicking on the restaurant link below and follow the sign-up instructions. If there is no link, that opportunity is at capacity. If registration is full, contact Raven Whitener at to be added to the waitlist and include your preferred opportunity.
