Annual Awards Gala

A woman of distinction is an inspiration to others who has made
 a commitment to her community as a leader and a role-model.

As a catalyst for change, she breaks new ground and old barriers.
She shows vision, creativity and initiative and has improved the lives of those in Muskoka. 

YWCA Muskoka’s 2018 Women of Distinction Awards Gala will be held at Mark O'Meara Clubhouse on October 24th.
