Salvation Army's 2011 Women of Dedication


It was a sold out, full capacity crowd for the 2011 Women of Dedication luncheon at the San Diego Sheraton Harbor and Marina February 24th, 2011. The 'Fifteen Fantastics' as they were dubbed, were honored at this 46th Annual event for the Salvation Army.

Event Co-Chair Yvonne Larsen and her daughter, Event Chair, Chris Andrews

Among the mix there were Event Chair Chris Andrews (she was determined and won a live auction prize later on), Chris's wonderful mother and Co-Chair Yvonne Larsen (she was honored last year at the American Heart Association Beach Ball Gala), and those Fifteen Fantastics. They are: Enid Allen, Marla Black, Teresa Figueredo Doyle, Vicky Eddy, Joan Embery (Animal Ambassador to the San Diego Zoo). Carol LeBeau, Fary Moini, Cynthia Olmstead, Dr. Emerald Randolph, Cathy Richman, Sara Jane Sayer, Carol Vassilliadi, Lynne wheeler and Carolyn Yorston-Wellcome.

The day started early with boutique shopping, and continued with a delightful Executive Stephen Black luncheon, a live auction, and introductions to the Fifteen Fantastics with singers taking artistic license to modify each song to the awardee.

This event is hosted each year by the Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary. All of the proceeds of this luncheon benefit social service programs of the Salvation Army right here in San Diego.
