Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Sixth Annual WDAS Women of Excellence Luncheon presented by Parx Casino is being postponed to a TBD date. We will announce and share the new date once it is available. If you have previously purchased a ticket for the event, please hold your ticket as it will be honored on the new date. Ticket sales for the event will resume once a new date is established. It is important to the WDAS family that we move the event to a date where you can feel comfortable and fully enjoy the event.
