WCGBR: Women's Week Activities

The 13th annual WOMEN! A WEEK-LONG CELEBRATION presented by the Women's Council of Greater Baton Rouge (WCGBR) will take place SEPTEMBER 19 – 28, 2014 throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area. This year we also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Women’s Council of Greater Baton Rouge!

WOMEN! A WEEK-LONG CELEBRATION is a great way to showcase your organization or business in the community. This event is a wonderful opportunity for publicity, promotion and synergy. WCGBR and the Greater Baton Rouge community wait expectantly each year for this exceptional event and we want you to be included. Last year, there were over 180 diverse activities provided by 48 different Patrons.

If you have an event that you would like included in this year’s Women's Week Celebration, please first sign-up as a Friend Level or higher Patron.   The Patron Packet is available here.

As a Friend Level Patron ($150), you may sponsor up to 3 activities. As a Copper Level ($250) or higher Patron, you may sponsor up to 5 activities, which will be listed on the website and in the 15,000 Activity Booklets that will be distributed city-wide. Please note as a Friend or Copper Patron, you have the option of paying on-line when you register your activities.

You may review the 2014 Activity Registration Packet by clicking on the Activity Registration Packet link here or on the upper left sidebar of this webpage. It contains the information you need to register and plan a successful event, including a Patron Activity Sponsorship Contract, Guidelines & Instructions and Activity Pre-Registration Form, which gives you the template to format your activity details. Once you have completed an Activity Pre-Registration Form for each activity, you will then be ready to fill out the Online Activity Registration Form and submit it for consideration.

Requirements and deadlines:
  • The "Patron Activity Sponsorship Contract" must be printed, signed and mailed with your Patron Agreement to the address on the contract by June 1, 2014 to guarantee inclusion in the Activity Booklet.
  • An "Activity Registration Form" must be completed for each activity and submitted online (as directed on the Activity Form) by June 1, 2014.
Join us! Together we can impact the Greater Baton Rouge community with this very special event by women, for women. Please feel free to call 225-302-8018 (ext. 3) or email activity@wcgbr.com if you have any questions or need additional information about WOMEN! A WEEK-LONG CELEBRATION.
