30th Annual Tribute to Women Awards Luncheon

Posted on June 28, 2013 · Posted in featured

Every May, we sponsor an awards luncheon, Tribute to Women, to honor a select group of women living and/or working in the Merrimack Valley who have made remarkable contributions in their professions and communities. The luncheon also raises critical funds for more than 21 YWCA programs and services in our Women’s and Youth Service divisions.

We invite you to make an investment in the success of the YW by sponsoring, advertising, attending or making a nomination for Tribute to Women. By doing so, you’ll be enabling the YW to…

Bring breast and cervical cancer screenings and education to over 820 medically underserved women;
House more than 35 survivors of domestic violence, and homeless, pregnant teens at YWCA Fina House;
Provide breakfast, a hot lunch and two snacks daily for up to 95 preschoolers;
Support our Girls Lead leadership program for girls age 10 to 13;
Assist more than 110 school-age children in our Tutoring and Computer Center programs.

This is our 30th anniversary year of this inspiring event which will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at the Andover Country Club in Andover, MA from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, with a special Honoree & Nominator-only reception from 11:30am to 12:00pm.

We are delighted having Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron, the new National YWCA CEO, serve as our special Keynote Speaker. Read Dara’s profile here!
