Woman Making a Difference: Traditional Home Classic Woman Awards

This Monday marked the seventh time Traditional Home magazine has celebrated amazing women making a difference through volunteerism with their signature program, Classic Woman Awards. The honorees are also featured in Traditional Home's November/December issue on newsstands now.

I absolutely loved that they chose to tie this year's awards to the start of the holiday season. The idea of giving of your time and talents to others especially those in need really resonates with me (as I am sure with all of you) - but even more so during the holidays.

Please join me in congratulating and thanking the exceptional woman listed below. I was lucky enough to have the chance to speak with many of them on Monday and they truly are just as beautiful and inspiring in person as they are on the pages of the magazine.

Liz Ferro / Girls with Sole

And a huge congratulations and big thank you to Ann Maine, Editor in Chief, as well as Beth Brenner, Publisher, and the rest of the Traditional Home team on such a successful event and raising awareness of so much good being done by some pretty incredible ladies!
