Meet the panelists for AWOB Awards

Alliance of Women Owned Businesses to host free panel

Staff writerApril 9, 2014 

The Alliance of Women Owned Businesses will offer a chance to hear the stories of entrepreneurs who have been nominated for its biannual awards.

The association will host a panel and reception for the finalists from 5 to 8 p.m. April 23 at The Inn at Gig Harbor.

The panel, which will run to 6:30 p.m., is free, but the reception requires tickets. It will have an open bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

The awards categories are the Crystal Star, Shining Star and Rising Star. Finalists were announced last month.

The awards gala will be held in May at the Fircrest Country Club. Several Gig Harbor business owners have been nominated.

Tickets to the reception are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. To purchase them, visit
