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 the Second Chance Scholarship recipients for 2016.
Our special guest and Celebration Award winner is Abby Arauz. A Radio City Music Hall Rockette for ten years, Abby used that career to launch a costume consulting business in New York City. She later expanded The Feather Place to Los Angeles, providing feathered costumes for movies including The Hunger Games and Maleficent, for musical productions including Beyonce's latest tour, and in fashion and merchandising including the annual Victoria's Secret Angel Fashion Show. She recently came home to mid-Missouri to consolidate The Feather Place with her family's business, Zucker Feather in California, Missouri.
In addition, Donna Westhues will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for her many contributions to our community and 14 local women will also be honored for their achievements. Two will be chosen as Zonta "Women of Achievement". Be a part of honoring these women!
