The YWCA Wheeling hosted one of its most important events of the year on Monday evening, “Tribute to Women”.
It’s an evening that honors some of the most impactful women in the Ohio Valley.
Each year, the YWCA’s board selects a group of women and honors their contributions in entrepreneurship, professionalism and philanthropy.
Community members were in attendance for dinner and an evening of honoring a group of five women for their achievements.
“This is just our way of saying thank you for your hard work, dedication and changing our valley,” said YWCA Executive Director Lori Jones.
This year’s honorees were Carol Austin, Crystal Bauer, Kimberly Florence, Betsy Jividen and Deiona Bush Gilliam.
