On Thursday, Oct. 10, women from across Arkansas will gather in Little Rock to celebrate the kick off of the Save10 movement in Arkansas, an effort designed to encourage women to prepare for retirement by saving 10 percent of their earnings.
Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr. will be on hand to declare the day (10/10) as the Save10 Day of Savings in Little Rock. He will be joined by several area officials, including state Sen. Missy Irvin and members of the Arkansas Women’s Caucus and the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, as well as Save10 co-founders Sarah Catherine Gutierrez and Stephanie Matthews.
According to Gutierrez and Matthews, Save10 “is a simple message delivered personally. We are asking women we know to commit to saving at least 10 percent of their income for retirement. And they are asking their friends, one-by-one, and we are building a savings’ army.”
As part of the Save10 movement, more than 5,000 women have joined a Facebook group dedicated to supporting individuals as they work to meet their goals.
The event will be held at the River Market Auditorium located at 601 East Third Street in Little Rock at 10:10 a.m. on October 10.
