Bedford, MA — April 6, 2020 — ConRes recognizes the importance of small businesses and is committed to supporting them during the time of economic uncertainty and hardship presented by Covid-19. As part of our commitment, we are sponsoring the 2020 Center for Women & Enterprise Auction and Gala. Funds raised from the event will provide critical support for CWE’s mission to transform women’s and veteran’s lives and create opportunities for them to become economically self-sufficient and prosperous through business and entrepreneurship. Originally scheduled for March 27, the event has been postponed, but financial support is needed now to provide business resiliency training and advice to the over 8,000 people participating in CWE programs each year.
“We are so proud to be helping women and veteran entrepreneurs during this difficult time. Small business is a key driver of a strong economy, but is particularly vulnerable to the economic disruption caused by Covid-19. CWE is on the forefront of providing important tools and training to help those businesses weather this crisis,” said Mary Nardella, CEO of ConRes.
The Gala will take place later in the year, but those wanting to support small businesses who need help right now are encouraged to Donate.
