Nominations being accepted for CHH's Women’s Philanthropy Society awards

For more information, please call 304-526-6314

Nominations are being accepted for two awards from the Women’s Philanthropy Society of Cabell Huntington Hospital through February 18, 2013. The Focus Award and the Kitty Hage Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented at the Women’s Philanthropy Society’s annual luncheon at 10 a.m. March 2, 2013 at the Guyan Golf and Country Club. These distinctive awards honor Tri-State women who exemplify the heart, strength and compassion of women.

The Focus Award: honors achievements in volunteerism, pioneering in women’s health, community service, professional achievement and home and family.

The Kitty Hage Lifetime Achievement Award: is presented to an individual whose life’s work has been dedicated to humanitarian efforts. The award is designed for someone who has not sought recognition for her deeds, but has worked solely to better her community and the quality of life for others.

“The annual Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon affords women from all walks of life an opportunity to gather together and honor women who are making a positive impact in our community,” said Christie Kinsey, a founding member of the Women’s Philanthropy Society at Cabell Huntington Hospital. “The proceeds of the luncheon support women’s and children’s causes at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Women give $100 and their gift combines with others to create a larger gift, enabling everyone to be a philanthropist. 

In 2012, the Women’s Philanthropy Society of Cabell Huntington Hospital donated more than $25,000 to the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Part of that donation was used to purchase breast milk warmers for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
