Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies Inc. (AWARE) is proud to announce the 2009 Women of Distinction, from left, Angela Lunda, Marla Berg, Marsha Buck and Ann Boochever. These women were chosen for their dedication and relentless service to peace, justice and the empowerment of women. Each honoree has enriched the lives of women and children and have made a legacy of compassion out of their own lives. Their accomplishments will be honored by AWARE on March 7 at Centennial Hall, with a catered dinner, silent auction and speeches by each of the women about what inspires them. Proceeds will benefit AWARE's domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and intervention services. For more information about the Women of Distinction event, call AWARE at 586-6623.
