Venus de Miles
Each year, Venus de Miles brings more than a thousand women together for sisterhood, community, and a great time, all in support of Greenhouse Scholars as we cultivate extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities. With a variety of course options to accommodate any active woman and a finish line festival that treats participants to great food, free drinks, and pampering spa treatments, philanthropy has surely never felt so good!
