Heroines of Washington is one of Washington’s most unique events, recognizing and honoring women in the D.C. Metro Area for their dedication to community service. Formerly Heroines in Technology, in response to the growing demand from our community, the March of Dimes has expanded this gala to honor women for their community service in various industries. Since 2001 the March of Dimes has honored 94 “heroines” and raised more than $2.4 million to make sure one day all babies are born full term and healthy. Guests include directors, CEOs and other high-level individuals from local corporations and government agencies.  Do you know a woman who works in the D.C. area whose community volunteer service is exemplary?  If so, please nominate her for a “Heroine of Washington” award where she may be honored at the upcoming event.
