Meet the 18 women representing the 18th annual SmartWomen fundraiser

They are authors, mothers, business leaders and our neighbors. Each of these 18 women representing the 18th annual SmartWomen fundraiser were chosen because of the way they inspire those they know and even those they don't. Learn more about these SmartWomen and how you too can have an impact on your community by making a donation to our Telfair Mammography Fund.

How your donation helps

SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo is an annual fundraiser for St. Joseph's/Candler's Mary Telfair Women's Hospital, which includes the Mammography Fund at Telfair Pavilion. The goal of the Mary Telfair Women's Hospital and the Mammography Fund is to ensure that all women have access to mammography, even if they have no insurance and cannot afford it. The SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Telfair Mammography Fund to meet this goal since its inception over a decade ago.
