Women of Achievement Awards
YWCA Cancels 35th Annual Women of Achievement Awards
Due to the current climate, impact on our economy, and potential for continued impact moving forward, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel YWCA’s Women of Achievement Awards, originally scheduled for Thursday, June 4, 2020. Given the recommendation of public health officials to avoid large gatherings for the foreseeable future, YWCA Lower Cape Fear’s Board of Directors decided it was prudent to suspend the event. The risk of holding the event would have needlessly compromised the safety and well-being of our guests, volunteers, and staff.
This is an important decision. YWCA appreciates its Board of Director’s leadership and decisiveness during this challenging time. The Women of Achievement Awards will happen at the right time, and we will celebrate strong, amazing, and impactful women when we are past this crisis.
Questions may be addressed to Grace D’Angelis (firstname.lastname@example.org), Marketing and Community Engagement Manager, at 910-799-6820.
