The focus of the evening is to honor twelve women of our community who are truly “Women of Vision:” These women have demonstrated visionary approaches in their professional and volunteer endeavors and have made a contribution to the well-being and empowerment of women locally, nationally, and internationally. They have enriched the lives of others with their courage, intelligence, talent and – of course – vision. They inspire us all through their innovation and leadership.
