logo3The YWCA Central Maine Women of Achievement Award Gala October 27, 2016   at Agora Grand Event Center

The YWCA Central Maine is pleased to announce that its Second Annual Women of Achievement Award Gala will take place at the new Agora Grand Event Center in Lewiston on Thursday, October 27th. Women of Achievement Awards are presented to women who have achieved excellence in their professional field or personal pursuits, passions, and causes. Award recipients are leaders of integrity within their communities and serve as mentors for other women. The awards program seeks to honor the spirit of women’s collaborative leadership and to recognize advocacy in the name of community building, rather than personal attainment. Nominees should have worked or served primarily in the State of Maine. A strong candidate will have made significant contributions to improving the lives and overall status of women and people of color in the State of Maine and demonstrate a commitment to the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.

From the nominations received, three recipients will be chosen. The three award categories of the Women of Achievement Awards program include: the Lee Young Leadership Award, the Tonie Ramsey Service Award, and the Priscilla Gendron Legacy Award. The award namesakes, Lee Young, Tonie Ramsey, and Priscilla Gendron, have all contributed their expertise, service, and philanthropic support to the YWCA.

Nominations will be accepted through July 1, 2016.

Nominations may be mailed to:

YWCA Central Maine
