Once a year we devote space in our magazine to honoring 10 of the most driven, caring, smart and inspiring women in 417-land. We fill those blank pages with stories of entrepreneurship and leadership, of generosity and compassion and of struggle and perseverance. This year we received more than 130 nominations, and the resulting pool was impressive. After we narrowed down the field to 20 finalists, you, our readers, voted to choose the final 10 women. 

The winners serve as examples to all of us of what it means to be outstanding parents, friends, siblings, spouses, business owners, engaged citizens and devoted volunteers. Each woman has selected a charity of her choice. The woman who received the most votes during online voting and who is named on the most ticket sales to Indulge: Exclusive Ladies’ Night Out will have a portion of the proceeds from the event donated to her charity. The winner is announced at Indulge, where the 10 winners strut their stuff on the runway. 

Now it’s time to meet them. Over the next 10 pages you’ll find out exactly why they made the list. 

 

See the winners walk the runway at 417 Magazine's Indulge
September 29, 5:30–8:30 p.m.
