Once again we are preparing for our Woman of the Year and Young Woman of the year on May 13th will be our 24th GALA EVENING 2015

Once again we are preparing for our Woman of the Year and Young Woman of the year on May 13th will be our 24th GALA EVENING 2015.

Every year, since 1987, the OBWA hosts the Nelle Carter Woman of the Year Awards & Lisa Brooking Young Woman of the Year Awards. The Woman of the Year Award is given to a woman respected for her outstanding work in her community, in the workplace, at home, or all three. The Young Woman of the Year must demonstrate high scholastic achievement, participation in extra school activities, and volunteer work in the community and be seeking post-secondary education; the chosen recipient as “Young Woman of the year” is given a $500.00 scholarship for her continued education.

We are hoping we can depend on your generosity In the amount of $250.00 to help offset the cost of our Gala evening on May 13th, 2015. Tickets are $45.oo each and we are expecting approximately 150+ people to attend. Including the Mayor our MPP and MP and other dignitaries of Orillia and surrounding areas. The event is held at the Best Western Mariposa Plus, 400 Memorial Ave. Carey Moran of Kicx FM will MC once again.

We have wide spread advertising to offer your business when you choose to sponsor our event. Every sponsor will have their logo on our Facebook page and Web site, and, a link to your Business for one year. This is in addition to your name/logo in the program of the evening and on the big screen in the ballroom. A “thank you” In newspapers & Radio will follow the event.

Checks are made payable to: OBWA and will be picked up by someone from the Executive committee of the Orillia Business Women’s Association. Please call or email at to let us know the check is ready for pick up. You can also mail it to: PO Box 2404, Station Main, Orillia, On. L3V6V7
