Girl Scouts Louisiana East announces 2013 Women
Award Dinner set for September 27 in Baton Rouge
Nine women leaders in the community will be honored at the Girl Scouts Louisiana East 2013 Women of Distinction dinner on Friday, September 27, at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center, 201 Lafayette Street in Baton Rouge. They are Peggy Armstrong of New Orleans; Brenda Leroux Babin of Houma; Linda Law Clark of Baton Rouge; Betty Dixon of Baker; U.S. Marshal Genny May of New Orleans; Anne Roberts of Baton Rouge; Julie Rose of Baton Rouge; Dr. Christy Valentine of New Orleans; and Jacqueline Vines of Baton Rouge.
The women were selected based on their remarkable achievements as business, community and civic leaders dedicated to supporting leadership opportunities for girls. Last fall the council recognized its first class of Women of Distinction during the Girl Scout Centennial Luncheon: the council’s legacy board/presidents, and is making this elite recognition an annual event.
“The group of women selected this year have dedicated themselves to make our community a better place, demonstrating Girl Scout values in all they do,” said Jackie Alexander, CEO. “We invite our supporters to join us as we honor these extraordinary women for their accomplishments and dedication to girls.”
Tickets for the awards dinner are $75 each or $85 for the champagne reception and dinner. The champagne reception is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with dinner from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Event Chair is former Girl Scouts board president and 2012 Woman of Distinction Ann Forte Trappey of Baton Rouge. Sponsors include Valero (Brownie sponsor) and Whitney Bank (Daisy sponsor), and additional sponsorships are available.
