Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga is asking the community to nominate outstanding women in the area for the 2018 Women of Distinction award.
On October 17, the new Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga will hold its inaugural luncheon to recognize 10 female community leaders.
A Woman of Distinction is one who:
• Volunteers her time to help improve the quality of life for others;
• Establishes standards that inspire and encourage other women to achieve their full potential; and
• Provides leadership and influences decisions that shape and define the city and community.
"These women give of themselves through their time, energy and talents to make a difference in our world. They are wives, mothers, sisters and friends. These Women of Distinction are representative of what every woman does-- -juggling professional careers, families, community service and philanthropic work," officials said.
The deadline for nominations is June 8. For more information or to download a nomination form go to womenofdistinctiongc.com.
Proceeds from this luncheon will benefit the three area heart and lung centers at Erlanger, Memorial and Parkridge hospitals. Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga is comprised of all volunteers with no paid employees. One hundred percent of sponsorship dollars remain local.
