Tickets are now on sale for the Woman of the Year and Scholarship Dinner, a night of celebration in support of economic and workplace equity for Mahoning Valley working women. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at The Lake Club, with doors opening at 5:30pm. Tickets are $55 per person and the public is welcome.
Since its beginnings in 2011, the dinner gala has grown into the premier fundraising event for the Youngstown Business and Professional Women, attracting guests from throughout the Mahoning Valley. Proceeds benefit two YBPW managed annual scholarships for future female business leaders — the Dr. Anne McMahon Scholarship Award and the Centennial Scholarship Award.
The 2021 Woman of the Year dinner takes place during National Business Women’s Week and will feature auctions, gourmet cuisine, exciting raffles, and the ever-popular wine pull. This year’s honoree will be YWCA Mahoning Valley President and CEO Leah Merritt. Elegant décor, themed cocktails, and other glimmering touches will create a night that guests won’t soon forget.
All proceeds from this event will bring vital funds and support to empower area women personally, professionally, and politically. For more information about YBPW or to make reservations for the Woman of the Year event, go to www.ybpw.org.
