PELHAM, N.Y. – State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin is calling upon the public to nominate local women who “inspire and help make Pelham a better place to live and work.”
Paulin, a Democratic legislator representing the state’s 88th district, said some of the women nominated will be honored during the Women of Distinction Awards ceremony at 4 p.m. on April 29 at The Daronco Town House, 20 Fifth Ave., Pelham.
The event coincides with Women’s History Month.
Paulin said the awards will recognize women for their work in various fields, including health care, business, volunteer work, education, humanitarian work and military service.
The assemblywoman will be joined at the event by Westchester County Legislator Jim Maisano and Pelham Town Supervisor Pete DiPaola, according to organizers.
“So many Pelham women are paving the way for a brighter future, breaking barriers and shaking things up for the greater good of our community,” Paulin said in the statement. “The Women of Distinction Awards is our way of saying thank you.”
According to Paulin’s office, this is the second time the awards have recognized women in Pelham. Previous events were held in Tuckahoe (2016) and Bronxville (2015).
