Congratulations! Ladies in Business Winners!
A grand affair was held on Wednesday, October 26th at the lovely home of Moe and Linda Hafizi to celebrate the 2nd annual élite Magazine’s Ultimate Ladies in Business Awards. We honored 22 local businesswomen for their hard work, dedication and growth in the community.
“To be surrounded by so many like-minded individuals and share in the success of what they work so hard to create brings me great joy. It’s everything I am about and exactly what I have been working so hard to foster for the past year,” said élite Magazine Associate Publisher, Amanda Benson.
The atmosphere just resonated with positivity and in a powerful speech given by President of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation and Vice Preseident of Marketing and Communication Marlee Lauffer. She reminded us that as women there is power in numbers, and it is vital for us to network, support eachother and pay tribute to those who have paved the way for the success of our current female workforce. With a special nod to Linda Hafizi, I think every woman felt empowered, strong and ready to tackle the world, one client at a time.
