SPOKANE, Wash. -

Kris Crocker hosted the Women Helping Women luncheon in Spokane today. The foundation is a non-profit, dedicated to empowering women to help create healthy families and vibrant communities.

Created in 1992 by six Spokane women, the group raises money for women and children in need in our community. Today's fundraising luncheon featured keynote speaker Bonnie St. John, picked by Nightly News as one of the five most influential women in America.

More than 16-hundred people were in attendance, and raised $250 thousand.
