The 30th Annual White Rose Luncheon is a salute to women of achievement. In the history of this event, March of Dimes is proud to have honored 198 women who have made a significant impact on their communities.
We are pleased to announce that Barbara Roberts, former governor of Oregon, will be the keynote speaker at the 30th Annual White Rose Luncheon. The first (and only) female governor of Oregon, and one of the first ten women to be elected governor in the United States, Roberts now represents District 6 on the Metro Council. Adding author to her long list of accomplishments, Councilor Roberts has recently published a personal and political memoir, Up the Capitol Steps: A Woman's March to the Governorship.
This year’s six extraordinary women whose volunteerism and professional contributions in Oregon have had a positive and lasting impact on the state’s communities will receive the award during a luncheon in their honor on May 21, 2012.
The 2012 White Rose Award honorees are:

Another distinction of the 30th White Rose Luncheon is the special recognition of community organization Levé. Levé’s mission is to lift and support local nonprofits, working together to address the most critical needs of the Pacific Northwest community. Levé selects an established local nonprofit to partner with each year. Invested in the success of the nonprofit’s mission-critical work, Levé provides financial and volunteer support throughout the year, culminating in their signature Charity Ball event. The partnership provides the nonprofit partner entrée to a new generation of donors while introducing this new audience to the needs of the local community, creating bonds that continue long after this initial exposure.
As a continuation of their support, Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) will be the Presenting Sponsor for the 30th Annual event. The mission OCF is to improve life in Oregon and promote effective philanthropy. OCF works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds to support the community causes they care about, awarding over $60 million grants annually. OCF President Max Williams will be speaking at the event as well.
