Message from Mother's Day Chair

The Igbo Women League (IWL) of Minnesota celebrated her 22nd-anniversary last year 2016, and that was a milestone for our noble organization. This year we are continuing the tradition with a formal adult only gala/banquet on May 13th, 2017 at the Ramada Plaza in Minneapolis. The event will begin at 5:00 pm and run till 1:00 am.

Our theme for this year is “Living in America, the Law and You”. There will be a panel of practicing lawyer experts for presentation on specific topics. We are also bringing in this year’s gala, a very talented stand-up comedian. The night promises to be a night to remember. Did I mention that there will be a delicious three-course meal as well as dancing too?

Here is a list of what we have planned for you:

  • Social Hour and Cash Bar
  • Buffet Dinner served promptly as 7:00 p.m.
  • Panel Discussion – By Panel of Practicing Attorneys
  • Entertainment- Stand-up Comedian
  • Dancing - DJ
