Circle of Hope Gala 2018
Pennsylvania Women Work’s premier fundraising event each year is the Circle of Hope gala. This event, which is held each fall in downtown Pittsburgh, honors a business leader from the Pittsburgh region for his/her commitment to Pennsylvania Women Work. In addition to this honor, several New Choices graduates are recognized with the Yvonne Zanos Women of Courage Award for their professional and personal success. All proceeds of the evening benefit Pennsylvania Women Work programs.
Join us as we honor courageous women and business leaders from the Pittsburgh region for their commitment to Pennsylvania Women Work and/or support of women’s empowerment and workforce development issues.
The 18th Annual Circle of Hope event will be held on October 10, 2018, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fairmont Pittsburgh. Our Circle of Hope Honoree will be Lora Dikun, Senior Vice President Human Resources, Legal and Safety and Chief People Officer, Giant Eagle. Giant Eagle is an ongoing supporter of our organization, and we are extremely grateful for their involvement.
We also will present our Honorary Woman of Courage Award to Kristen Bell, Regional Senior Director of Human Resources at Comcast. This honor is given to a woman who rose above significant life obstacles to achieve professional success by using ingenuity, perseverance and strength of character.
Our 2018 gala will feature a plated dinner, cash bar, music and silent auction.
