    MRWBA’s luncheons and events are possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. This year, we are offering two sponsorship levels (Platinum and Gold). These sponsorships provide an opportunity to promote your brand to a demographic of well-educated, professional women with an average salary of $101,126 per year. 

    Sponsors have the opportunity to sponsor one of our luncheons or another signature event, such as a membership social or mentorship function. 

    COVID-19 has impacted all of us in many ways, and the safety of our members is of utmost importance to us.  Due to safety concerns, MRWBA will be hosting virtual luncheons for the months of September, October, and November.  MRWBA will make a decision regarding the format of the remainder of the bar year luncheons in the fall.  

    MRWBA will reduce the sponsorship amount by 50% for sponsors of our virtual luncheons.  

    We appreciate our sponsors’ continuing support during these challenging times.
