Event description
2019 Outstanding Women of Burlington County Awards

About this Event

Each year the Burlington County Women's Advisory Council and the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders host an Awards Reception honoring women who have made a difference in the Burlington County community. The Council annually honors women who have made significant contributions as well as demonstrated their support of other women. They may have acted as mentors, role models, or advocates for other women.

The winners have been chosen from several areas of exceptional service. In addition to the awards being presented, three local students will also receive scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. They will be honored an awards reception on Tuesday, June 11 at 5:30 p.m. at The Merion in Cinnaminson. The banquet provides a forum to explore and learn more about the often-unpublicized activities of the award recipients.
