YWCA honors Gina Lanza

— During the 10th annual An Evening In Tuscany benefit for the YWCA Spokane coming on July 8, the annual Sir Lancelot award will be given to long-time YWCA Spokane supporter, Gina Lanza. Gina is a well known Chef and the previous owner of Amore Italian Restaurant and the Anaconda Grill.

In 2005, Gina's involvement with the YWCA Spokane started through volunteering her time in Our Sister's Closet, the YWCA's donation-based, free clothing boutique for women. Shortly after, Gina offered to facilitate a cooking class to raise money to purchase hygiene supplies for Our Sister's Closet. Her class was a huge success and spurred the inspiration to create something more. The following year, An Evening In Tuscany was born, and became an annual source of support to meet the needs of the women and children living in the YWCA Spokane's domestic violence safe shelter.

An Evening In Tuscany has grown from an intimate dinner to a beautifully established benefit, now four times the original size. With Gina's help, this annual fundraiser for the YWCA Spokane has raised $75,000 over the last 9 years.

July 8 at the new 'An Evening In Tuscany' benefit location, Barrister Winery, 1213 W Railroad Avenue. More information can be found at www.ywcaspokane.org.
