Women to be inducted into the Hall of Fame
Submitted By Lorraine Provost
Eleven women who are community leaders due to their vision and contribution will be inducted into the Alameda County Women's Hall of Fame for 2012. This year's luncheon and awards ceremony is set for Saturday, March 31, 2012, at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Lincoln Avenue, in Oakland.
In 1993, the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, and the Alameda County Health Care Foundation, established a permanent Women's Hall of Fame. Its purpose is to recognize outstanding women for their achievements and contributions to the overall well being of our county and citizens.
In addition to honoring outstanding women the event has generated funds to help provide comprehensive health services, education, and treatment services in Alameda County.
Nominations are open until December 16; please visit http://www.alamedacsw.org/ to nominate a woman in your community.
The event is open to the public. Tickets are $75 each, with proceeds going to charities that support women and girls in Alameda County. For more information, go to www.acgov.org, or call the County Administrator's Office at (510) 272-6984.
