Outstanding Women of Burlington County Awards

Each year the Burlington County Women's Advisory Council and the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders host an Awards Reception honoring women who have made a difference in the Burlington County community. The Council annually honors women who have made significant contributions as well as demonstrated their support of other women. They may have acted as mentors, role models, or advocates for other women.

The winners have been chosen from several areas of exceptional service. They will be honored an awards reception on Tuesday, June 11 at 5:30 p.m. at The Merion in Cinnaminson. The banquet provides a forum to explore and learn more about the often-unpublicized activities of the award recipients. The awards reception is open to the public.

The Council is also presenting scholarships to three outstanding 12th grade female students from Burlington County. The scholarships will include the “Alice Paul Champion Award”, the “Celeste Arties Memorial Award” and the “Elizabeth Coleman White STEM Award”. The Council is pleased to be awarding three Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to each award recipient. 

If you are interested in honoring this year's award winners and would like to show your support of the Council please consider participating in the annual ad book or being a sponsor. For more information on program book advertisements and sponsorship opportunities click here.

Individual tickets are $75 or $675 per table of 10. Please RSVP by June 3 to Christine Gonnelli.
