The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary hosted its 54th annual Women of Dedication "All Stars" Luncheon on April 12th, 2019 at San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina.

The funds raised will benefit the Salvation Army's "Homeless to Homes" Project - two new full-service campuses to be constructed on existing Salvation Army sites, thanks to an historic major gift from Evelyn and Ernest Ready.

 Nearly 800 fans turned out to celebrate 12 Extraordinary Women, all "Champions of Giving" for their decades of philanthropic work in the San Diego community. The 2019 WOD Chairs conjured up "WOD ALL STARS" for this year’s title, a lively sports theme that offered all sorts of fun possibilities.

Chairs were Sandra Maas, Judy Burer, and Vicki Eddy. Honorary Chair was Betty Kornreich, a former SAWA President and a 1999 Woman Of Dedication. A heart-warming addition was made to the event with the presentation of the Inaugural Peggy Matthews Award to Kim & Marilyn Fletcher. More information https://sdsawa.salvationarmy.org/
