The YWCA BRAVA Awards, which were first established in 1977, honor accomplished women, proven executives, recognized leaders in their fields and mentors in the community. The keynote speaker for the event will be Old Greenwich Kendra Farn, an Emmy Award-winning news anchor and founder of P Garyn Productions.

“BRAVA plays a significant role in supporting many YWCA programs and services including Domestic Abuse Services, scholarships for children who cannot afford our childhood education programs and free women’s leadership seminars,” said YWCA President and CEO Adrianne Singer. “I congratulate these women on their wonderful accomplishments. They certainly are role models that other women can emulate,”
