Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama hosted its 15th Annual Women of Distinction Awards Gala and Auction March 25, 2010 at Wynlakes Golf and Country Club. Over 200 attendees helped celebrate the honorees accomplishments and commitments to their community. We've posted our photo gallery of the event, and will have video from the event, also.
Honorees included Margaret Hastings Bentley, Wanda Lloyd, Judge Sharon Gilbert Yates, Bette Sue Strasburger, Karen Sellers, Sheron Rose and Edith Jordan Wilcox. Young Women of Distinction honorees included Abigail B. and Miranda S. Girl Scout Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Liz Carnahan. These women, through service to their family, career and community have set an example of excellence and Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is proud to recognize them.
Highlights from the evening included a reception and silent auction before the awards dinner. The program began with special guest speaker, The Honorable Sue Bell Cobb, Chief Justice, Alabama Supreme Court, who delivered the keynote address. The mistress of ceremonies was WSFA-12 news anchor Tonya Terry. The fabulous evening also included a live auction conducted by Auctioneer Johnny Mullins.
Proceeds from this event will help Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama make leadership development programs available to every girl, everywhere.
Special thanks to all of our sponsors and volunteers who helped make the night a success!
