2021 Educate a Woman Event Features Comedienne Karen Mills

Karen Mills

Comedienne Karen Mills will be the keynote speaker at the 2021 Educate a Woman (EAW) luncheon on Friday, May 14. The event supports scholarships for women at Volunteer State Community College. Mills has been in the humor business for more than 21 years, touring clubs, colleges, and theaters across the country. A publicist said: “She finds the funny in everyday life and that didn’t change when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She was determined to take on the disease with hope and humor. Now cancer free, she has been hailed for her ability to bring humor to difficult topics as she recently did when she spoke at the National Alliance for Ovarian Cancer in Washington, D.C.”

Attendees are asked to RSVP by April 30 and there is a suggested minimum donation of $50 requested at the event. Thus far Educate a Woman has raised over $297,000 for scholarships. The 2021 event will be held at the Epic Event Centre in Gallatin with a social distancing friendly layout.

Registration and lunch start at 11 a.m. and the program at 11:45 a.m. This year’s title sponsors are Sumner Regional Medical Center and Subaru of Gallatin.
