For all of our 2017 events, District Bliss will be donating a portion of our ticket sales to a worthy cause! The Women’s Employment Network was founded in 1986 to assist women in raising their self-esteem and achieving economic independence through sustained employment. Their vision is to advance positive change in the lives of women, their families, and the community, one woman at a time.
