Women Making a Difference in the Valley are honored with a tribute luncheon

The 10th Annual Women Making a Difference in the Valley Tribute Luncheon will be held October 7, 2010, at the Grassy Hill Lodge in Derby, Connecticut, from 12:00pm-2:00pm. The tribute recognizes those women who have shown notable achievement in their lives and professions and whose contributions have made a positive difference in the community.

The women to be honored this year are Laurie Casey, Beverly Kondor, R.N., and Susan Wildman, all of Seymour; Linda Hvizdo of Shelton, and Stephanie Wain, M.D., of Derby.

The event is sponsored by the Women’s Health Initiative with a goal to increase breast cancer awareness. Proceeds from the event benefit the Griffin Hospital/Valley Breast Care Fund, which assists people of all ages and socio-economic conditions in obtaining screening mammograms and diagnostic testing for breast cancer.
