DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The YWCA Dayton honored seven local women at its annual Women of Influence awards luncheon on Thursday.
The honorees are women in the Dayton community who have made a positive influence on the lives of others as part of their careers, as volunteers, role models, or mentors.
“It is a very special day when we pause and we celebrate and we recognize influential women in the Miami Valley. And not just influential women, but women who use their influence to further the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women,” says Audrey Starr, Director of Marketing and Communications for the YWCA Dayton.
The luncheon is in its 22nd year and is the largest annual fundraiser for the YWCA.
