By recognizing women who are exceptional young advocates, outstanding mentors, and legacy leaders we are creating an intergenerational opportunity for women to see it, so they can be it. This mission driven fundraiser will also allow us to provide the wrap-around programs, and services so women and their families can thrive. This year’s awards night will be like none before it.“ Says YWCA Moncton Executive Director, Jewell Mitchell ”We are rolling out the red carpet, turning up the volume on entertainment, and aim for the night to be as inspirational and exciting for the women and men who attend, as for those ultimately revealed as YWCA 2018 Women of Distinction.”
