Not All Sheroes Wear Capes

Not All Sheroes Wear Capes, the Sisterhood’s very first fundraiser, opened with an hour of casual socializing as attendees arrived, sipped piña colada and berry flavored mocktails, and snacked on savory samosas. The reception area at the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation was transformed from a center of logistical chaos to a happy hub of reunions and introductions. For the first time in the organization’s history, our Sheroes, friends, allies, nonprofit partners, donors, and grantmakers gathered to celebrate our Muslim sisters together.
