Kicking Up Our Heels at the Governor’s Mansion

Invitation to KUOH - 2014

It’s time for our annual celebration of all the great accomplishments women are chalking up in Washington State: our Kicking Up Our Heels reception in Olympia at the Governor’s Mansion with Gov. Jay and Trudi Inslee.

This year we honor the women who have been the unsung heroines of health care – those women doctors & nurses, those public health administrators, the leaders in health cooperatives, health insurance customer service gurus, as well as non-profit managers – who have made the changes in health care attainable.

Put March 6th on your calendar for the official reception event which starts at 5:30 pm at the Governor’s Mansion.
If you are from Seattle, note that we leave on our famous “Rock Star” buses starting at 3 pm on March 6th from downtown Seattle (we’re securing the location now and will have free parking passes for participants).

If you know of a woman who belongs in our “Health Honor Roll” to be highlighted by the Governor, then please send your nomination to us via our Contact page. Just explain who your woman nominee is and why she deserves to be one of the dozen we honor.

Every cent raised from our sponsors of the Mansion Event will be used to produce our Leadership Institute which recruits young women from all over the state for our weeklong leadership training to be held June 24 through 28 this year at Seattle University.

All of our sponsors will be acknowledged in an email to all our members – a comprehensive list of women leaders from all over the state.  Your logo & website link will appear on our site acknowledging your support of this event, and you’ll be listed on our invitation.  You’ll be invited to join us on the trip down and back on executive buses where you will meet with 25 other women leaders who are sponsoring this event.  And we’ll get you a parking pass to leave your car at a downtown Seattle parking lot, should you be coming from Seattle to join us on the buses to Olympia.

Our sponsor levels include:

Best Friend – $5,000 – The Best Friend level offers you four tickets and four seats on our executive buses.
Great Friend – $2,500 – The Great Friend level offers you three tickets and three seats on our executive buses.
