The 'Women of Distinction Awards Gala' has a new date, it'll now be held on Thursday, November 18th. 

The Brandon YWCA was forced to postpone the event last month dure to pandemic restrictions. 

It'll take place at the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium to honor women in the region who've made significant contributions to their communities.  

More than 26 nominations were received for the categories that include Arts/Culture & Design, Agriculture, Business Leadership, Community Leadership, Education, Healthy Living, Science & Technology, Young Women of Distinction (18-25 years old), Young Trailblazers (17 years and younger), and those who have dedicated a Lifetime of Achievement.

Proceeds from the event go to support a variety of YMCA-YWCA programs in the City of Brandon and Westman. Tickets are still available at https://www.womenofdistinctionbrandon.com/
