Out & About: Women for Orphans Worldwide Luncheon

In 2008, 12 eighth-grade girls from such Preston Hollow schools as St. Monica Catholic, Parish Episcopal, and St. Rita Catholic and their mothers took a mission trip to Guatemala to serve orphaned and vulnerable children.

They returned wanting to do more and founded Women for Orphans Worldwide (WOW), now a national auxiliary of Orphan Outreach.

In the years since WOW has raised more than $3.5 million and taken more than 50 mission trips involving more than 1,500 WOW members and friends.

All of that was celebrated during the 15th WOW Luncheon on Dec. 4 at the Westin Dallas Galleria.
