Regsiter Now


At the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg we routinely conduct reviews of our program offerings to ensure they meet both the community’s most pressing needs and our charitable purpose in the most effective and broad-reaching way possible. Our Women of Distinction awards program is currently under review and therefore we will not be holding the event during our traditional May time frame. We anticipate relaunching the program in the Fall of 2018. More details to follow.

  • Align your company with a worthy organization and cause
  • Philanthropic contribution to community
  • Intimate contact with a receptive audience at a positively-charged event
  • Corporate awareness and exposure

The YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Awards Gala could not continue honouring women in our community each year without the ongoing support of businesses in the community. We are extremely grateful for our sponsors!
