Marjaree Mason Center, Fresno County’s only dedicated provider of domestic violence shelter and support services, including education for victims and youth, announced today that nominations are being accepted for the 33rd Annual Top Ten Professional Women and Leading Business Awards on Oct. 14 at the Fresno Convention Center.
The 33rd Annual Top Ten Professional Women and Leading Business Awards, a prestigious awards ceremony honoring local professionals, will bring approximately 1,200 attendees together with the goal of honoring these outstanding individuals in our community while also raising awareness for domestic violence.
This event pays tribute to ten women who have served as role models and given back to their communities, all while making strides in their professions.
One local business is also honored as the Leading Business of the Year for its support of women and women’s issues.
Any community member may place a nomination by visiting https://www.mmcenter.org/top-ten.

The deadline to submit nominations is July 22. A panel of judges will review each candidate and provide a ranking based on preset criteria. The Marjaree Mason Center will announce award recipients in August.
