The YWCA’s Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) event honors women who have made significant contributions to their fields, and recognizes those organizations that support such achievements. 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of TWIN. Leading up to this year’s September 15th event, we will highlight each of our 25 incredible TWIN Honorees. If you would like more information about the TWIN event, or would like to reserve a ticket, please visitwww.ywcaofasheville.org.
