Orange County Convention Center


Year after year, the women of IAEE continue to come together as a community with a commonly shared goal to give back to the local communities in or near our event city.

In 2019, we raised the bar by supporting not one, but two new organizations. Partnering with Casey Cares and Headbands of Hope, IAEE WLF attendees were able to raise $805 in donations for Casey Cares and 252 headbands were purchased totaling $1,678 for Headbands of Hope. We thank you for your contributions!

Casey Cares Foundation

At Casey Cares, they know how difficult life can be for families with critically ill children. They help keep families’ spirits high by arranging programming – whether it’s a simple movie night and a fresh pair of pajamas or attending a major sporting event. Casey Cares makes life a lot better by adding a personal touch throughout the year and making lasting memories for families throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and portions of the Midwest.

Headbands of Hope

IAEE and the Women’s Leadership program is supporting Headbands of Hope and we invite you to join us! We, as a community and industry can do more. With so many cute headbands to choose from, just think…another child’s day can be brightened by receiving a headband too.  For each IAEE supporter purchase, another headband will be donated locally to the sick children at the Inova Children’s Hospital and Cancer Program located in Leesburg, VA.  The Inova Children’s Cancer Program is a highly respected program with a celebrated reputation for meeting the unique needs of young cancer patients and their families, working with the pediatric cancer experts at Schar Cancer Institute, one of the nation’s top 50 cancer programs.

Through these organizations, our donations will help transform the lives of not only children with cancer and critical illnesses but also their families.

Your donations can make a difference! Support IAEE’s Women’s Leadership Forum in creating an experience for these children in need and brighten their day, one smile at a time!
