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. Multiple course options welcome women of all shapes, sizes, and athletic abilities. Participants enjoy a supportive, encouraging atmosphere and a finish line festival featuring complimentary lunch, cocktails, spa services, a unique vendor expo, and lots of fun. Philanthropy has surely never felt so good!
