“Offering educational opportunities is part of our Komen mission and we are pleased to participate as a nonprofit partner in this workshop series,” said Lisa Wolter, executive director of Susan G. Komen Orange County.

The “It’s Your Money” sessions cover the business of money, while the “It’s Your Estate!” sessions cover all the legal documents you will need to set up an estate plan using a variety of local Orange County estate planning attorneys as instructors.

The national award-winning series was started by Peter Kote in 1993 when he was employed by California State University, Long Beach. Originally designed to educate staff and faculty about financial and estate planning, the series has evolved but stayed true to its purpose – to educate participants free of charge, in a safe environment, to avoid the sales practices of the financial sales industry which can be perceived as predatory.

Attendees can attend all sessions or just the ones that best meet their needs.  No financial products are sold and participants will not be solicited for a donation. To attend, please call (949) 463-1507 or RSVP at For more information, visit
