Welcome to the 9th annual Amazing Airdrie Women Awards presented by airdrielife and Pharamave on Centre. On the following pages you will read about 32 women who inspired others so much, they were nominated by their peers, families, co-workers, neighbours and teachers to receive this very public hug.

Please read each woman’s story and then take a moment to join us online at airdrielife.com to vote for your choice for Amazing Heart, Determination, Leadership and Promise. Your votes count for 50% of the final decision in the selection our recipients. (We select the Amazing Courage recipient in advance and this year we are proud to share Sarah Cormier’s story with you.) The other 50% is decided by our editorial team, previous recipients and sponsors.

A special shout out to our amazing sponsors who make this whole process and awards luncheon May 10 possible: Pharmasave on Centre, Davis Chev, Airdrie Eyecare, Fitzsimmons Brewing Company, McKee Homes, Pureform Radiology, Cream Bath and Body, and TD Bank.

We present the awards May 10, at the Woodside Golf Course, at what I consider to be one of the highlights of my year. Tickets for the always sold-out luncheon go on sale March 6 – be sure to secure yours early at woodsidegc.com. It’s a wonderful day to celebrate the women in our community with a gourmet lunch, the hilarious observations of comedienne Cory Mack, and the electric energy of 100+ women (and men!) celebrating and honouring the amazing women in our city.
