Past Event - 2019 Tribute to Women of Excellence

Thu, Mar 21, 2019 -
5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

The YWCA Greater Harrisburg is pleased to announce that the 30th annual Tribute to Women of Excellence (TWE) awards dinner will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at the Hershey Lodge.

Over the last 29 years, the YWCA has honored more than 640 extraordinary women for their contributions to our region, both professionally and philanthropically. This year, we look forward to honoring 29 women who dedicate their time and talent to making a difference in Central Pennsylvania. The Class of 2019 is comprised of women in our community who:

  •  participate actively in the community as a mentor, volunteer or role model,
  • demonstrate integrity, strength of character and leadership,
  • and embrace the vision and mission of the YWCA.

 The YWCA also recognizes two prestigious awards in addition to the annual class of honorees as tribute to two inspiring women in our community.

  • The prestigious Carolyne L Smith Legacy Award was established in 2001 to honor an exemplary woman whose efforts set a standard for a lifetime commitment to the welfare of the Capital Region. 
  • In 2007, we instituted the Emerging Leader Award to recognize the efforts of women under 30 on behalf of the community, particularly with regard to mentoring younger girls. In 2017, we dedicated the award to Karen F. Snider for her contributions to improving the lives of young women.
