Kristin Chenoweth to Keynote 10thAnnual JFS Woman to Woman Luncheon

By Tricia White

Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth will keynote the Jewish Family Service of Greater Dallas’ 10th annual Woman to Woman Luncheon on May 25, 2022, celebrating the power, influence, and impact of women.

Chenoweth is best known for her work on Broadway in hit shows such as Wicked, as well as her performances on television shows like The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, and Schmigadoon! 

Founded in 2004 by Ethel Silvergold Zale, the Woman To Woman luncheon has raised $4,661,994 in support of 150 programs and services. JFS is an open door to anyone in need, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or ability to pay.

“Your support of this event makes it possible to deliver our nationally accredited mental health and social services to the 39,000 individuals and families that turned to us for help last year,” says Linda Garner, Woman to Woman Legacy Chair.

When people turn to Jewish Family Service for help, they can rely on licensed professionals to make a positive difference in thousands of lives every year in an atmosphere of respect and confidentiality. 

Woman to Woman takes place on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at noon at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel, 15201 Dallas Parkway. 

Sponsorships are available beginning at $1800, and this year, virtual sponsorships are also available beginning at $1000. In addition, a limited number of individual tickets are available at $250.

This milestone year will pay tribute to all the past chairs of the event. 

“We look forward to a wonderful 10th year celebration with Kristin Chenoweth and can’t wait to see you there,” says Ethel Silvergold Zale, event founder and Legacy Chair.

More About Kristin Chenoweth:

Kristin Chenoweth’s career spans film, television, voiceover and stage. In 2015, Chenoweth received a coveted star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2009, she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in “Pushing Daisies.” In 1999, she won a Tony Award for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown,” and she was also nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked” in 2004. Chenoweth has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People’s Choice Award for her role on “Glee.” In 2009, she wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, “A Little Bit Wicked,” which debuted on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List. 

Chenoweth can currently be seen starring in the Netflix film “Holidate” and in Warner Bros.’s new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s creepy children’s book “The Witches” on HBO Max. Upcoming, Chenoweth will executively produce as well as star in the single-camera comedy series “The Biggest Star in Appleton,” which is currently in the works at Disney Plus. 

Chenoweth also recently released her latest album, “For The Girls,” debuting at #3 on the Current Pop Albums chart and #11 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. The album is a heartfelt tribute to the great female singers throughout history, particularly some of Kristin’s heroes and friends. Guest artists include Ariana Grande, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Hudson and Reba McEntire. The album includes Chenoweth’s personally charged interpretations of classic songs identified with such iconic artists as Barbra Streisand, Lesley Gore, Linda Ronstadt, Dinah Washington, Dolly Parton and more. To celebrate the release of her new album “For The Girls,” Chenoweth returned to the Broadway stage this past November in an eight-performance concert engagement at the Nederlander Theatre. 

Chenoweth has performed to sold-out audiences across the world, including performances at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall.                                                      

Chenoweth recently starred in the second season of NBC’s hit comedy series “Trial & Error,” receiving critical acclaim for her performance as Heiress Lavinia Peck-Foster. Notable television roles include appearances in “The West Wing,” Disney’s “Descendants” and “The Muppets.” In film, Chenoweth voiced the role of Gabi in the hit animated film “Rio 2” and Fifi, Snoopy’s beloved French poodle in “The Peanuts Movie.” She starred in the indie teen drama entitled “Hard Sell” and additional film credits have included “The Boy Next Door,” “Deck the Halls,” “Twelve Men of Christmas,” “Four Christmases,” “RV,” “Bewitched,” “The Pink Panther,” “Hit & Run” and “Family Weekend.” 

Chenoweth is a passionate supporter of charities that dedicate their time and efforts to helping those in need. She formed a charity partnership with the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center (BAPAC) Foundation in her home state of Oklahoma. Chenoweth’s accomplishments were honored by her hometown with BAPAC naming “The Kristin Chenoweth Theatre” in 2012. 

Chenoweth is a graduate of Oklahoma City University with a Master’s degree in Opera Performance. She is an inductee into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, as well as the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
