Please plan to attend the luncheon on Monday, March 26 from noon to 2:00 p.m. at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, to celebrate the 48 Most Intriguing Women of Arizona.

Part of Arizona’s yearlong Centennial Celebration, the 48 Women project was created to honor women from diverse backgrounds whose leadership and commitment have contributed in a positive way to the future of Arizona. The event will officially recognize the 48 honorees selected from across the state by the governing board.

“Being able to meet and get to know the honorees has been a truly amazing experience,” said 48 Women Chairperson Connie Robinson. “This remarkable gathering will be a memorable event acknowledging the women for the many contributions and accomplishments they have achieved not only within their communities, but throughout the state of Arizona.”
