On behalf of Darien Rowayton Bank, Ellen Bay presents a check to Ellen Kirby, Executive Director of the YWCA Darien/Norwalk for their 4th Annual Women of Distinction Awards to be held May 16th at Woodway Country Club in Darien.
The Women of Distinction Award is bestowed in recognition of the outstanding achievements of a select group of women. Local residents, volunteers, teachers and business owners nominate women whose significant and unique contributions have made a difference in the Darien and Norwalk communities. A Woman of Distinction is a leader, role model, agent for change, mentor and/or inspiration to others. She has demonstrated exceptional skills in breaking new ground or old barriers and made a difference in her workplace, community or nonprofit.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the YWCA Darien/Norwalk and its programs for women and children in lower Fairfield County. These include Job Search Support for Women, Parent Awareness and Girl 2 Girl. The Job Search Support program provides women with the skills and tools required to become employed. YWCA Parent Awareness provides free educational programs to promote the healthy, positive development of Darien youth and families. Girl 2 Girl (G2G) is a new pilot program designed to create resilience as well as empower girls in middle school.

Our national mission is dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
