2013 Women Who Make A Difference Awards

The 2013 Women Who Make a difference Awards coincides with Make a Difference Day. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others – a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. For more information about Make a Difference Day visit www.makeadifferenceday.com.* October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – visit www.NBCAM.org* for more information.

This award is presented each year to two women customers (three this year) of Lakeside Bank. The objective of this award program is to recognize women who have made extraordinary contributions in the workplace and/or in their communities by going above and beyond – thus truly “making a difference” in the lives of others. It is for that multi-tasking, do-gooder "superwoman" we all aspire to be – who continues to inspire, and still manages to keep the work/life balance intact. We are proud to announce this year's awardees: Gloria & Lola Jenkins, Executive Director & VP of Operations, Westside Association for Community Action; Susan Weber, CFO, New Frontier Management Corp./Pacific Management, Inc., Founder, Russell C. Page Charitable Trust.


Winners will be honored at a special awards ceremony on Wednesday, October 23rd, 5:30 PM at Fulton's on the River, 315 N. Lasalle St.. Each winner will win a $1,000 donation to the non-profit organization of her choice. In addition, winners will each receive an engraved Swarovski crystal vase, a bouquet of flowers, a framed invitation of the event, and a lovely Lakeside Bank gift bag full of goodies.
