Nab your seat now to welcome Billie Jean King to the Women’s Fund Keyholder event on Thursday, May 4 at the Ohio Theatre. CNN’s Lisa Ling will interview the tennis legend. Tickets are still available, and Women’s Fund will give away two pairs of tickets to a couple of lucky Right Now Downtown readers.

Keyholder is a night to come together to influence gender equality and economic security in central Ohio. Be part of an evening to raise awareness and give visibility to issues affecting women and girls while highlighting solutions to create lasting social change.

“You hold the key to advocate and change the game for women and girls,” said Nichole Dunn, President and CEO of The Women’s Fund. “Each year, The Women’s Fund convenes the community with our Keyholder event; to raise awareness for gender equality and influence issues affecting women and girls in central Ohio.”

Billie Jean King is the epitome of a game changer, breaking down barriers on and off the court for women and girls as a pioneer for gender equality. From her history making Battle of the Sexes match against Bobby Riggs and fight for Title IX, to founding the Women’s Sports Foundation and commitment to equal pay for equal work, she is a tenacious leader for positive social change.

Lisa Ling is an award-winning journalist and feminist; she uses her platforms to share stories that are too often ignored, the stories that don’t make the headlines.

Tickets for Keyholder 2017 are $50 and on sale here or by calling the office at 614.225.9926. More information can be found on The Women’s Fund website.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for a Public Reception featuring complimentary treats from local women-led businesses. The program will start at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 4th, 2017.
