Communities that KARE: Aspiring Women's Independent Network

AWIN is a group of business women making a difference in their community.

MINNEAPOLIS — Communities that KARE is taking a look at a group making great strides in Minnesota for women in business and people in need.

AWIN, Aspiring Women's Independent Network empowers women through networking and creating meaningful relationships through volunteering and fundraising. So these ladies at lunch aren't just socializing -- they're building a foundation for a strong female business community.

More than 100 women from industries like marketing, real estate, finance and others get together each month in Minneapolis for lunch and fellowship. The group has donated to organizations like 'Feed My Starving Children', and have donated coats to the homeless. The organization picks a cause each quarter - sometimes it's a charity, and sometimes it's a family that needs a little extra help.
