Women Of Distinction Of Greater Chattanooga Announce They Will Postpone Their Event Until Fall Of 2021

Monday, June 1, 2020
Due to impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the nonprofit sector in the greater Chattanooga region, the Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga Steering Committee has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga event until the fall of 2021.
 
The Steering Committee recognized that many non-profits who had events scheduled for the spring have moved them to the fall, in addition to fundraisers that normally take place at that time of year. The Committee feels that this decision will help to alleviate the crowded schedule and assist others in fundraising.
 
Any nominations that have already been received for 2020 will automatically be placed into the nominations for 2021.
 
More information will be forthcoming about next year’s event, as well as money raised for the three area hospitals.
