Louisville Tiffany Circle Nationally Recognized

Earlier this month, members of the Louisville Area Chapter Tiffany Circle Society of Women Leaders attended the annual Tiffany Circle Summit in Washington, D.C. Each year the summit offers an opportunity for Tiffany Circle members to gather and share best practices.

Co-Chairs Jill Howard and Mary Rivers were joined by first year members Diane Davis, Mimi Heuser and Kathy McHargue at the two-day event which offered speeches from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Ambassador of Japan Ichiro Fujisaki and a performance by country singer Wynonna Judd.

Louisville members received a special surprise during their trip when they were honored with the “Best Practices for a Mid-Size Chapter” award. The women have worked hard this past year, generating more than $650,000 for American Red Cross services.

“It was great to be able to show new donors how valuable the Louisville Chapter is nationwide,” said Tiffany Circle Member and chapter liaison Diane Davis. She attributes their success to seeking guidance from chapters with more experience.

The Tiffany Circle is a society of women leaders and philanthropists who each invest $10,000 annually to their local American Red Cross chapter. Members of the Tiffany Circle provide living examples of Red Cross virtues in their local communities, by ensuring that the Red Cross has the ability to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to life's emergencies.

The Louisville Tiffany Circle plans to have their annual meeting July 11th. There they will go over funds and plan activities for the upcoming fiscal year. For more information on the Tiffany Circle, please contact Diane Davis at
