Tribute to Women

Tribute to Women was born in 1992 as a way to empower women by recognizing their dedicated work and its positive effect on our community.

June 2, 2016 marks the 25th Tribute to Women celebration!

A program like none other in the area, Tribute progresses the YWCA mission by providing community corporations, organizations and businesses a platform to publicly acknowledge the outstanding achievements of women in the East Tennessee-Southwest Virginia region. Additionally, Tribute to Women serves as a significant source of funding for the vital services offered to women and families through the YWCA.

In 2016 there will be no new nominations, instead we will take a moment to look back and celebrate the more than 160 women from across our region who have been Tribute to Women recipients. 

The event, on June 2, will feature a cocktail supper at the Bristol Train Station and a celebration at the Paramount Center for the Arts in downtown Bristol, with special guest entertainment from Kellye Cash.  Tickets are $125 and include the cocktail supper and performance at Paramount Bristol. 

The event starts at 6 PM at the Train Station.  Guests should park in the TriSummit lot or on the street. There will be trolleys available to transport guests from the Train Station to the Paramount for the performance.
