Women are often the force in many community events and opportunities for growth, awareness and family success. Columbus has a vast array of women assisting others through education, charity, ministry and family struggles.

Hundreds of these women were celebrated right here in Columbus, Ohio recently. It was their turn to be praised, supported and thanked. This was an evening of music, community and joy for so many. We heard motivating talks discussing the demands on our lives and the increasing expectations we place on ourselves. Music from amazing National artists was played with the gratitude directed back to those that serve others in Columbus. This was an evening of thank you’s to those that consistently give to others and ask for little in return.

I was blessed to be part of this event. I was invited to attend because of the efforts I make to give back to others, especially thru Huntington’s Disease and Special Olympics. I believe that we can all make this world better thru caring for others and lifting each other up. That is what this evening exemplified.

Hannah Kerr, Ohio Christian University Christian Rock band and Plumb opened our hearts to love, God and kinship. These musicians cheered the women in attendance. The energy was unmatched. Thank you to the sponsors of this event. I am grateful that I was included and my heart and motivation were re-energized!

This event was sponsored by 104.9 The River radio station and Eleventh Candle Company.
