The YWCA Phoenix announced the 2016 honorees of its prestigious Tribute to Leadership awards, which will be presented at the annual Tribute to Leadership Gala at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. The evening recognized community leaders and outstanding individuals who are committed to making a difference in regard to women’s empowerment, community service, racial justice and other vital categories.

Among the influencers recognized were Fresh Start Women’s Foundation President and CEO Susan Berman, Concerns of Police Survivors Arizona President Jan Blaser-Upchurch and Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center Adult Neurological Program Coordinator Ashley Bridwell.

Guests dined on a sumptuous main course of short ribs and Dover sole stuffed with spinach and ricotta doused in a beurre blanc sauce. But the best was saved for last: for dessert, an indulgent chocolate Grand Marnier truffle torte with strawberry sauce. -Photography by Lori Krenzen
