LWV luncheon set for April 28

The ballroom at Oakland’s Scottish Rite Center will be the site for a gala Silver Anniversary event – the 25th anniversary of the League of Women Voters (LWV) All-City Luncheon, which is set for Thursday, April 28. The event begins with registration and networking at 11:15 a.m. and will end at 1:30 p.m. Alex Padilla, California’s Secretary of State, will be the featured speaker. Secretary Padilla will share his plans to increase voter participation in California’s elections and build a pool of registered voters that reflects more closely the diversity of the population of the state. Individual tickets go on sale in March, but it’s not too early to pledge to host a table. For additional information, visit, call (510) 834-7640 or email
