The Women’s Committee A sisterhood of care
The Women’s Committee of Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation raises thousands of dollars annually to support programs that advance the health and wellbeing of women in our community. They are the single largest group of volunteers helping to make our Martha Jefferson Caring Tradition promise a reality.
Through annual fundraising events including In The Pink Tennis Tournament and the beloved Martha’s Market, The Women’s Committee has raised nearly $6 million over the past 30 years to fight breast cancer and benefit women’s health in our communty. From free breast health screening days serving 200 women annually to wigs, scarves and eduational resources to help women on their cancer journey, TWC-funded programs are a lifeline for women and families during some of the toughest moments of their lives.
