Annual Vernon business gala celebrates women

North Okanagan residents have an opportunity to celebrate women who make a difference.

Vernon Women In Business hosts the 25th anniversary Woman of the Year gala May 17 at the Best Western Plus Vernon Lodge.

“As a tribute to all past recipients of the Woman of the Year award, we are inviting them to the event as our guests,” said Colleen Barker, event chairperson.

The first award was presented in 1988.

“A few of the ladies have passed away, but we have managed to locate family members who will attend in their place”, said co-ordinator Barb Silvester.

“Most families were thrilled to be asked to represent their mother or mother-in-law at the event.”

The nominees for the 25th Woman of the Year will be announced today.

Tickets for the May 17 gala are now on sale at www.vwib.com or by contacting Krista Ingram at  doctorkrista@gmail.com.
