YWCA of Greenwich BRAVA Awards
Greenwich, CTFebruary 10, 2017
On Friday, February 10, YWCA Greenwich honored eleven special women at the 2017 BRAVA Awards luncheon. Established in 1977, this 40th BRAVA Awards recognizes outstanding women who are proven executives, acknowledged leaders in their fields and mentors in the community. They reflect the YWCA’s core mission of Empowering Women and Girls.
“We regularly celebrate and highlight the talents and accomplishments of women to solidify the notion that women can compete and lead in any arena,” said Mary Lee Kiernan, YWCA Greenwich, President and CEO, “And these accomplished women are role models and mentors who are empowering other women and girls to accomplish even more in the future.”
BRAVA plays a significant role in supporting the many YWCA programs and services, including Domestic Abuse Services that is offered free to all clients; scholarships for children in our preschool, after-school, camp, aquatics, and youth fitness programs; Women’s Leadership Seminars; and free community-wide Racial Justice initiatives.
Dozens of local businesses, including Winston Flowers who donated the corsages and beautiful centerpieces, lent support through contributions and in-kind donations that made the event special for the honorees and guests.CLICK AN IMAGE TO ENLARGE
