For those of you that missed the 30th YWCA Women of Distinction event, you missed a truly inspiring evening. We laughed, we cried and most importantly we celebrated the achievements of some incredible women in our community. I left the event with a renewed sense of energy and passion to challenge myself to find ways I can contribute even more to my community. I also saw how much the nomination meant to those individuals and want to do more to recognize the wonderful women in my life.
I had the incredible honour of presenting the Honourable Lois E. Hole Award for Lifetime Achievement to Kathleen Quinn. Her tireless work being a strong voice for the exploited women in Edmonton and beyond makes her a very deserving recipient of this award.
I want to congratulate our category winners Kari, Kim, Amanda, Marjorie, Raelene, Angela, Isabella and Juanita. A sincere thank you to TELUS, Barry Lycka M.D. and all our sponsors; Carrie Doll for being a wonderful MC and the individuals in the community that took the time fill out the nominations packages, without your support the event would not be possible.
President, Board of Directors
