On behalf of Darien Rowayton Bank, Ellen Bay, Darien branch manager, presented a check to Ellen Kirby, executive director of the YWCA Darien/Norwalk, for the fourth annual Women of Distinction awards, which will take place on Thursday, May 16, at Woodway Country Club in Darien.
The YWCA Darien/Norwalk's 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.
