Tribute to Women

Tribute to Women was born in 1992 as a way to empower women by recognizing their dedicated work and its positive effect on our community.

June 2, 2016 marks the 25th Tribute to Women celebration!

A program like none other in the area, Tribute progresses the YWCA mission by providing community corporations, organizations and businesses a platform to publicly acknowledge the outstanding achievements of women in the East Tennessee-Southwest Virginia region. Additionally, Tribute to Women serves as a significant source of funding for the vital services offered to women and families through the YWCA.

In 2016 there will be no new nominations, instead we will take a moment to look back and celebrate the more than 160 women from across our region who have been Tribute to Women recipients. 

The event, on June 2, will feature a cocktail supper at the Bristol Train Station and a celebration at the Paramount Center for the Arts in downtown Bristol, with special guest entertainment.  Tickets are $125 and include the cocktail supper and performance at Paramount Bristol.

Nominations for new recipients will resume in 2017.
