About Sole Sisters

Sole Sisters was founded in 2005 as the Women’s Initiative for the Greenwich United Way. Since our founding, we have raised over $2.7 million dollars. Each year, Sole Sisters identifies and supports a specific cause. Our causes have ranged from improving educational services in the community to supporting mental health initiatives.

Luncheon Speaker

Each year, the Sole Sisters seek a keynote speaker who will inform and inspire this very influential, philanthropic group. From Greenwich or any one of our neighboring towns in Connecticut and New York, they come to be inspired by someone they admire, someone who has gone above and beyond professionally, personally, and for the benefit of others and someone who shares their commitment to service and the community. Past speakers have included: Andrea Canning, Lauren Bush Lauren, Melissa Bernstein, Gretchen Carlson, Arianna Huffington, Susan Fales-Hill, Kayce Jennings, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, Gloria Vanderbilt, Jeannette Walls, Linda Fairstein, Sara Moulton, Lynn Sherr, and Lisa Birnbach. As you might imagine, each speaker has been wonderful in her unique way.
