United Way to honor outstanding women

DULUTH -- On Aug. 25, the United Way Women's Leadership Council honors several women at the 9th Annual Legacy Awards for their contributions to the community at the Gwinnett Place Marriott. The event is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This year's honorees are Davida Baker for her time, Connie Wiggins for her talent, Karen Fine Saltiel in treasure, and Ethel Anderson in legacy.

"Every woman nominated has used her unique gifts to make a meaningful impact on the Gwinnett community," event co-chair Jennifer Thilo said. "Our selection committee had a challenging task, but we are all proud to recognize this year's outstanding honorees."

Last year's event raised $34,000, which was given to the Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry, Norcross Cooperative Ministry, the Salvation Army, Rainbow Village, the Impact! Group and CPAC.

Tickets are available for the event for $100 per person or $1,000 for a table for 10. The proceeds benefit the United Way.
