Congratulations to 2016 TWIN Honorees

Annapolis, MD, June 8 – The 2016 TWIN Awards Ceremony was held on June 2 at the Westin Annapolis Hotel. The YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County is very proud to welcome the TWIN class of 2016 to an already outstanding group of nearly 900 women. 300 guests were in attendance to celebrate the achievements and contributions of the 18 honorees receiving this prestigious award. These guests included keynote speaker Representative Donna Edwards, as well as Senator John Astle, County Executive Schuh, Delegate Pam Beidle, Janice Hayes Williams representing County Councilman Chris Trumbauer, and Dr. George Arlotto – Superintendent of Anne Arundel County Public Schools. This year’s ceremony emcee was Carrie Neuman of WRNR Radio.

The 2016 TWIN Awards presenting sponsor was M&T Bank, who has sponsored this event every year since its inception in 1985. 

Proceeds from the event provide direct support and critical resources to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault through the programs of the YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, as well as funding of the Fresh Starts Capital Campaign to build a new safehouse shelter.
