The eighth annual Women Front & Centre Gala Awards, Dinner & Dance will be held March 2 at the Penticton Lakeside Resort. The event is tied in with month-long celebrations centered on International Women’s Day. This fun evening is twofold — celebrating the achievements of women in our communities of the South Okanagan and at the same time raising funds for the South Okanagan Women In Need Society.
We invite women and men of the South Okanagan to nominate that special person — you know her. Women who are role models and advocates and use their talents, vision and determination to make our communities a better place. Women who inspire us through their creativity, leadership, compassion and dedication.
There are eight award categories to select from: Arts, Culture & Design; Community Building; Education, Training & Development; Entrepreneur; Health, Wellness & Active Living; Non-Profit or Public Sector; Young Leader; and Courage. We are sure you know of someone (be it in the workplace, friend or family member, neighbour — someone in your community) that fits one or more of these categories. Nominate her today so we can recognize and celebrate her on March 2.
Nomination deadline is Jan. 25. For more information visit: www.sowins.com or call 250-493-4366, ext. 110.
