Meghan Markle, the duchess of Sussex, is scheduled to participate in a Women’s Fund of Central Indiana event on Nov. 29.
Billed as “The Power of Women: An Evening with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex,” the benefit will support the Women’s Fund mission to invest in the lives of women and girls in central Indiana.
“Women’s Fund of Central Indiana believes in the force of women’s voices, women’s experiences and women’s work,” said Tavonna Harris Askew, advisory board chair, in a written statement. “We know that Meghan, the duchess of Sussex does, too. We are honored that she will join us on this special evening to celebrate our common cause—the power of women.”
Markle, who married Prince Harry in 2018, grew up in the United States and acted in the cast of USA Network series “Suits” from 2011 to 2018. She and Prince Harry stepped down as British senior royals in 2020.
Rabbi Sandy Sasso will serve as moderator for the event at Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, 350 W. Maryland St. Tables for 10 attendees are available for $5,000. For more information, visit womensfund.org.
