On March 28, 2013, over 500 community leaders and supporters of the YWCA South Hampton Roads came together to honor the 2013 Women of Distinction honorees.  Nicole Livas, WAVY News 10 Anchor and 2012 Women of Distinction Honoree, served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the sold-out event.  Each year, the YWCA South Hampton Roads recognizes outstanding women who have made significant contributions to the community through their professional activities and volunteer efforts.

Since 1989, the YWCA South Hampton Roads has honored close to 300 women who have made significant contributions to the community through their professional achievements, volunteer activities, and civic service at this event. The Women of Distinction award recipients are the personification of the YWCA mission: eliminating racism, empowering women.
