From Alameda County Administrator's Office
Less than two weeks remain to nominate an outstanding local woman to the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame, which will mark its 20th Anniversary with a special celebration in March 2013. A Dec. 14 deadline has been set for nominations for the 2013 Women’s Hall of Fame.
The Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame raises funds for nonprofits providing critical human services in the community by organizing an inspiring luncheon and awards ceremony each year that honors prominent women in the community as well as unsung heroes. The 2013 event will mark the program’s 20th Anniversary with a special celebration that honors past and present inductees who have contributed significantly to the Alameda County community.
Nominations are now being accepted for outstanding women in 12 categories: Business and Professions; Community Service; Culture and Art; Education; Environment; Health; Justice; Non-Traditional Careers; Science; Sports and Athletics; Philanthropy and Youth. Apply online at http://acgov.org/cao/halloffame/.
The 20th Annual Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame luncheon and awards ceremony will be held Saturday, March 23, 2013, at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Lincoln Avenue in Oakland. The event will be hosted by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women.
In addition to its support of local human services programs, the Women’s Hall of Fame supports a Youth Scholarship that helps a young woman further her educational pursuits. To mark this significant 20th Anniversary milestone, the 2013 Women’s Hall of Fame program aims to leverage greater levels of civic involvement and corporate support in order to expand on its annual support for youth, women and families in Alameda County.
