Welcome to the GWENS!

GWENS 2018 Holiday Tea Fundraiser

About Us


Who We Are

We are Shanon and Shea Shumpert.  In 2000, we began hosting a diverse group of  women for our Shumpert Annual Holiday Tea event.  Our invitees include attorneys, educators, doctors, CEOs, counselors, entrepreneurs, and everything in between, representing all industries.  We network while celebrating our accomplishments and revel in the positive environment created by the warmth and welcoming nature of our guests.  

In  2013, we added a fundraising element to the event where guests were asked to make a monetary contribution towards our selected charity.  Past funding recipients include Clara's House,  Project Hope - Marillac St. Vincent Family Services, and Connections for Abused Women and their Children.   


Our Vision and Purpose

     GWENS is a champion for women in crisis. GWENS will partner with established community charities and services to raise needed funds to expand their reach. 


Our Mission

   The Mission of GWENS is to create a self-governing organization for empowering and supporting women in crises. GWENS will host networking and fundraising events to benefit women in need of financial support to escape violence or other domestic events that prevent them from reaching their full potential.
