More than 250 women across the Tri-State attended the annual Women’s Philanthropy Society Annual Luncheon at Guyan Golf and Country Club on Saturday, March 2, to honor three women who have made a positive impact on the community.
The Christie Kinsey Focus Award, the Kitty Hage Lifetime Achievement Award and the Abigail McNeely Youth Service Award were presented to honor those who exemplify the heart, strength and compassion of women.
“The annual Women’s Philanthropy event celebrates 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 and chair of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation Board. “Every dollar donated at the luncheon supports women’s and children’s causes at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Each gift combines with others to create a larger gift, enabling everyone to be a philanthropist.”
In 2018, the Women’s Philanthropy Society of Cabell Huntington Hospital donated nearly $25,000 for women’s and children’s services at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center.
