Our Members Tell Our Story
"Joining IWF since 1986, I have had the opportunity to meet, inter-act, become friends and continue to be amazed at the inspiring women domestic & International members. Let’s continue to join hands and make our world a better one."
A new IWF NorCal member, Nakiye Boyacigiller, a dual member with IWF Turkey, met Valerie Corradini at a recent event, where they discovered Valerie would be traveling to Istanbul at the same time. They connected with Iffet Ozgonul, who is a co-founding member of the Turkey forum. Iffet owns one of the leading tour companies in Turkey and kindly showed Valerie and her guest the city. As Valerie noted on her return, her wonderful experience truly embodies the warmth and global connectivity of our IWF membership.
The annual Legacy Foundation Online Auction is now closed. Our auction featured over 20 items, generously donated by fellow IWF NorCal members. From a spa day at Cavallo point, a round of golf at the Olympic Club, private boat cruises on the San Francisco Bay, books authored by members, coaching sessions, cool designer sunglasses, to tickets to the symphony, theatre and San Francisco Giants game, there was something for everyone! In addition, this year, the auction featured two overseas adventures - unforgettable African safari tour packages and spots on a Global Leadership Trip to Cambodia!
