The Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga will hold its 2021 Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, October 27 at the Chattanooga Convention Center at 11:30 a.m.
This year's proceeds will benefit Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth to age five. In Hamilton County more than 12,000 children receive books each month, regardless of family income, and each child registered from birth receives sixty books.
"Since 1983 some 350 local women have been honored as Women of Distinction," officials said.
"These women annually give of themselves through their time, energy and talents to make a difference in our community and beyond. In 2018 the organization was reorganized and renamed the Women of Distinction of Greater Chattanooga, with volunteers presenting the event and all proceeds remaining local. Ten women from many walks of life who have made significant differences in this community because of their varied contributions will be selected this year."
