Recognition ceremony to be held January 9.

The newest group of Lake Media's Top 10 Women of the Year will be honored during a reception January 9, 2013 at the Country Club Hotel and Spa.
These women were selected following a nomination process where members of the community submitted candidates to be considered. An independent panel of judges chose the candidates after reviewing each nomination.
Those selected have been contacted. The Top 10 Women have been interviewed and will appear on the cover of the January/February 2013 issue of Lake Lifestyles magazine. The full list of those chosen will be unveiled at the reception.
The Heart of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women will host a silent auction fundraiser during the event to raise money for the organization's scholarship programs and other charitable efforts. PBW makes annual contributions to Citizens Against Domestic Violence, the LAMB House, Woman 2 Woman, Share the Harvest and the Hope House. Each year, they provide scholarships to students and working women wanting to continue their education. The silent auction will feature items donated by local businesses and former Top 10 Women.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The program begins at 6:30 p.m.
The public is invited. RSVPs are not necessary. Heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served.
