HERE: Dining for Women Ahwatukee chapter

Dining for Women is a national group where women get together for a meal and discuss a particular nonprofit that is making a difference in the world. At the end of the evening, each participant donates to that organization what they wish. The group meets once a month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month.
