Ethel Tibbits nominations close Feb. 4
The nomination deadline for the 18th annual Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards is less than a week away, and locals are urged to cast the spotlight on those deserving of recognition for their hard work in the community.
The nomination period closes on Friday, Feb. 4 at 5 p.m.
If you know of a local woman who deserves recognition for the work she’s been doing in the community—whether it’s volunteering for a sports team, bringing a business to new heights or championing the arts— please take the time to fill out a nomination form.
Nomination forms are available at richmondreview.com under Community Links, or can be requested by e-mailing email@example.com
Our community’s best and brightest women will be feted during a fundraising luncheon at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport on Monday, March 7 at noon.
Nominations are being accepted in five categories: Arts, Sports, Youth, Business and Community.
Nominators must obtain the consent of each nominee, and each nominee must agree to attend the luncheon, for which they will receive a free ticket.
The primary beneficiary of this year’s luncheon will once again be the Nova Transition House for battered women and their children, operated by Chimo Crisis Services.
Other beneficiaries includes the Ethel Tibbits Endowment Fund scholarship program—administered by the Richmond Community Foundation and awarded to women seeking to upgrade their education and skill in order to re-enter the work force—and the Richmond Women’s Resource Centre.
