Do you know an extraordinary woman who has made a difference in South Florida? If so, the American Red Cross wants to hear from you.
The Red Cross is calling for nominations for the 18th Annual Sara Hopkins Woodruff Spectrum Awards for Women. Women shape the fabric of South Florida. As business leaders, teachers, physicians, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, nurses, mentors, and mothers, women every day are making a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others around them.
The annual Spectrum Awards salute the women, past and present, who have made significant contributions in all walks of life.
To nominate an outstanding woman, visit online at www.southfloridaredcross.org. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 1.
Recipients of the Sara Hopkins Woodruff Spectrum Awards for Women will be honored at a luncheon on Feb. 3, 2011 at the new JW Marriott Marquis, 345 Avenue of the Americas in Miami.
The Spectrum Awards honor women in the following categories: Ambassador, Cultural, Education, Entrepreneurial, Healthcare, Hospitality, Philanthropy, Red Cross Service, Volunteerism and Youth.
Award recipients are selected by a committee comprised of local business and community leaders prominent in the field of each category.
In 2010, more than 400 community leaders attended the prestigious luncheon and raised $170,000 for the vital, life-saving programs of the American Red Cross.
