YWCA Wausau will name its 2019 Women of Vision at its 27th annual recognition luncheon May 17, at the Hilton Garden Inn. Women of Vision celebrates women who help others and have a vision to make the community a better place.
This year, Eileen Eckardt, Connie Heidemann, and Christy Keele will be honored. Eckardt serves as the director of family health and communicable disease for the Marathon County Health Department.
Heidemann is executive director of the Marathon County Literacy Council (McLit).
Keele works as a guardian ad litem, litigating civic and protection matters.
The keynote speaker for the event is Diane Postler-Slattery, president and CEO of MidMichigan Health, but many will know her as the former President and COO of Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Tickets are on sale until May 10 and are $35 per person or $250 for a table of eight. More information and tickets are available at YWCAWausau.org.
