Lifetime Achivement Award


Women of Western Wake & Lifetime Achievement Award

Today I had the pleasure of attending an event that I go to EVERY SINGLE YEARThe Women of Western Wake, presented by Cary Magazine.

This event is held at the end of October at the gorgeous Umstead Hotel & Spa in Cary.   This year marked the 10th year for the awards luncheon and I was honored to sit at a table with my friends in the Cary Women’s Giving Network.   We decided to all go in together and sponsor a table so we could have the opportunity to tell other ladies about our group!  Over the years, many of the ladies in our Cary Women’s Giving Network have been featured as the award winners for The Women of Western Wake and this year was no different.  But it was a VERY SPECIAL year as our very own, Sheila Ogle, was selected as the FIRST EVER Lifetime Achievement Award Winner in honor of the 10 Year Anniversary!

Needless to say, Sheila was totally shocked!   This recognition is very much deserved for Sheila and it was a gorgeous huge swirly and heavy award!   We all laughed as the award colors looked perfect with her dress and shoes (see picture below!)

Award and her shoes!

The 2017 Women of Western Wake are as follows: Nicole Dozier, Leigh Duque, Gayle Greene, Fara Palumbo and Miss Vatinet.  Congrats to them all!  Enjoy the photos from today’s luncheon.
