2012 Neighborhood Dinner

In 1994, The New York Women’s Foundation® (NYWF) inaugurated the Neighborhood Leadership Award. Moving from borough to borough each year, NYWF established the Neighborhood Dinner to award not-for-profits leaders and woman-owned businesses who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their community in neighborhood-based work on behalf of women and girls.
