YWiB Congratulates the Nominees of the 2012 YWCA Women of Distinction Awards! On Thursday, May 24th we’ll be celebrating alongside the incredible women who have been nominated for this year’s YWCA Women of Distinction Awards! Yup, YWiB will be in the crowd - supporting, clapping and ‘cheers’-ing with the women who will be recognized for their contributions to the community.

Some of the nominees are familiar faces to the YWiB crowd as they’ve been YWiB supporters in the past! Past Beyond Pink speaker Patricia Graham has been nominated in the Business and the Professionals category, and Beyond Pink panelist, and recent speaker Andrea Scott has been nominated in the Entrepreneurship category.

And of course, many of our supporters have been nominated in the past - including Judy Brooks (YWiB Advisory Board), Michelle Pockey (YWiB Advisory Board) and Tamara Vrooman (speaker).

But we’re most familiar with the YWCA gala from 2010 when our very own Paulina Lipska, YWiB President was nominated in the Young Woman category!

We’ll be at the Westin Bayshore this Thursday sipping bubbly, bidding in the silent auction and mixing and mingling with some incredible women. Come say "hi" Thursday night - can’t wait to see you there.
