WLC June Social @ Dilworth Tasting Room
Jun 8 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Please join us for our first ever WLC Social at Dilworth Tasting Room.  I have a feeling this is going to wind up being a favorite spot for WLC, so make plans to say you were at the inaugural 🙂  *NOTE* This begins at 5:00PM (not 6:00PM as usual) so head over straight from the office … maybe even get your evening started a little early.

WLC Luncheon @ Bonterra Dining & Wine Room
Aug 10 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
WLC August Social
Aug 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fighting For Women With Fashion @ TBD
Oct 3 all-day

Fighting for Women with Fashion began in 2011 when United Family Services, members of the Women Physicians Section of the Mecklenburg County Medical Society, and members of the Charlotte Women’s Bar, now Women Lawyers of Charlotte (WLC), came together to support the community’s efforts to end domestic violence and raise money for the building of the Clyde and Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter.

In the past five years, the Fighting for Women with Fashion Show has raised more than $180,000.00 for the Safe Alliance Clyde and Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter.

Tickets will be available shortly, please check back.


WLC is continually expanding its network of women lawyers in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.  If you would like to become a member please submit your application.
