The Women's Foodservice Forum has announced the creation of a fund in honor of its late President and CEO, Fritzi Woods, who passed away unexpectedly two weeks ago.
According to a news release, the Fritzi Woods Aspire Higher Fund will provide leadership development opportunities for women in the foodservice industry in support of WFF's mission of advancing women leaders. WFF's goal is to reach $100,000 in donations in four days and then continue to grow from there.
"This fund will enable the development of a new generation of leaders and create a lasting legacy for Fritzi as we continue the momentum she created to deliver on the vision for women to aspire higher," said Laurie Burns, WFF chair and Darden Restaurants SVP, Specialty Restaurant Group Strategic Platform & Development.
Tax deductible donations can be made to the Fritzi Woods Aspire Higher fund online at wff.org, at any Wells Fargo location or by mailing a check to: Women's Foodservice Forum, c/o Fritzi Woods Aspire Higher Fund, 6750 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75240.
