The Sarnia Community Foundation has announced the selection of five area women who will be honoured at an event on Thursday, June 20, among them one of our own—Mary Jean O’Donnell, who serves as first vice chair on the board of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce.

Other women selected by the Sarnia Community Foundation include Shauna Carr, Cathy Dobson, April Lepore and Anne McGugan.

“These are women who support one another, who work on common goals, who help other people achieve their dreams, and who share their gifts willingly,” said Jane Anema, executive director of the Sarnia Community Foundation.

The June 20 event will take place at the Sarnia Riding Club. Tickets are $50 and available through the Sarnia Community Foundation office by phoning (519) 332-2588. A portion of proceeds will support the Women’s Interval Home Fund, the Blue Eyes Big Heart Scholarship and Joanne Klauke Labelle Scholarship at the Sarnia Community Foundation.
