YWCA Lower Cape Fear

Women of Achievement Awards

Presented by: 


The Women of Achievement Awards (WOA) is the YWCA Lower Cape Fear's signature fundraiser to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women and young leaders in our community. Since 1985, we have recognized more than 300 Women of Achievement.
