Myrtle Evertt awards coming to Mission

Mission's BPW club is hosting the Oct. 10 event at Cedarbrooke Chateau

For the first time, the Myrtle Evertt Women of the Year Award will be taking place in Mission this year.

The Business and Professional Women’s (BPW) club of Mission is inviting community group, women’s organizations, businesses and individuals to nominate someone who exemplifies an outstanding woman in either the health or education sectors.

These awards were established in 1994 to recognize and honour local women for achievement in business or a profession.

Local businesses Cedarbrooke Chateau, Lanka Jewels and Oasis Rejuvenation Spa are stepping forward to support scholarships for female students entering post-secondary training.

This year’s event takes place at Cedarbrooke Chateau on Seventh Avenue on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

The event will be held every second year. In 2014, the candidates will be nominated from the non-profit community service and the sport athletic sectors. In 2016, the business sector and the culture/fine arts sector may identify nominees. The BPW of Abbotsford club will hold the event in 2013.

For more information, call Pam Alexis at 604-302-2005.
