Event description

Description

The Women of Achievement "Yellow Rose Luncheon" is Zonta's largest fundraiser of the year.

The luncheon recognizes and honors local women for their accomplishments and contributions to our community through the presentation of two "Women of Achievement" awards. Zonta also presents the "Mrs. William H. Weldon Lifetime Achievement Award" to a woman who has achieved success in the community over a lifetime and recognizes Second Chance Scholarship recipients.

The Celebration Award winner and speaker is noted mystery novelist, Elaine Viets. A native of the St. Louis suburb of Webster Groves, Elaine worked at the St. Louis Post Dispatch from 1972-1994. Her clever columns created a large, loyal readership. In 1997 she officially changed careers from journalist to novelist with the publication of her first mystery novel, Backstab. Since that time, Elaine has published 31 more mysteries and won the Agatha, Anthony and Lefty awards. In 2007, Elaine suffered a series of strokes which resulted in surgery where part of her frontal lobe was removed. She describes the experiece through her character, Angela Richman, in the novel Brain Storm. Living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Elaine and her husband Don Crinklaw had to recover from Hurricane Irma in 2017. Please join the Zonta Club of Jefferson City as we celebrate the resilience of an amazing woman.

The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Debbie Hamler, Director of the Special Learning Center. She is being honored for promoting resilience in hundreds of children and their families for more than 30 years. Two of the 14 local women who will be honored at the luncheon will be selected for additional recognition as the 2018 Zonta Women of Achievement winners. We invite you to join us as we celebrate all of these awesome women.
