14th annual SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo a huge success

This year's 14th annual SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo was a huge success. We are excited to announce the 2016 SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo raised more than $150,000. We would like to thank everyone who attended and all our sponsors for their continued support in making this event a yearly success. 


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.

This year's speaker was Fran Drescher; actress, author and health advocate. Drescher is best known for her portrayal as Miss Fine on CBS’s hit series The Nanny, but also received the prestigious NCCS writer’s award for Cancer Schmancer, which along with Enter Whining, were New York Times best sellers.
