Women honored at annual Women of Distinction luncheon

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- A number of Chattanooga women were recognized Tuesday afternoon for their service to the community.

The 28th annual Women of Distinction awards luncheon took place at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

The event honors women who have made an impact in the professional lives and through volunteer work in their communities and churches.

To many, the help these women give is irreplaceable.

"I don't think that we could afford these ladies. I mean it probably helps the bottom line of so many non-profit organizations to have the expertise of these ladies here in Chattanooga helping," says Shirley Cudabac, the Development Director for the American Lung Association.

Ten Chattanooga area women were recognized, as well as four high school seniors and women who have been helping out in the community for decades.
