The Heroines in Technology awards honor local women who balance demanding roles in the fast-paced technology sector with significant commitments to community service. The event included a cocktail reception, dinner, live band, and live and silent auctions. Proceeds from the event support local March of Dimes programs of research, community services, education and advocacy to reduce the occurrence of birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
The 2008 finalist video was shown at the event, highlighting all of the finalists achievements, prior to announcing the yearly winners (Robin Gardner & Susan Kearney).
This event raised $198,000, benefiting the March of Dimes.
