YWCA Women of Achievement Awards Brunch
The Women of Achievement Awards Brunch is the YWCA’s biggest annual fundraiser and was founded to honor the powerful leadership of women in Maine. The Women of Achievement Awards Brunch is not only a uniquely powerful celebration of women leaders, it is also an opportunity for the community to come together in support of the YWCA’s work in Lewiston-Auburn. Funds raised through the event benefit our childcare and aquatics programming, the YWCA’s women’s empowerment programming, and the organization’s ongoing advocacy work for justice and equity in our community. The Women of Achievement Awards Brunch serves as a time for our organization and community to reflect on the history of women’s achievements in Maine and to look ahead to an equitable future through supporting the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women. This year's awardees are: Kristen Cloutier, Klara Tammany, Annette Wilson, and Azenaide Pedro.
