The Golden Women’s Resource Centre has awarded Gale Brownlee as their Woman of the Year.

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre has awarded Gale Brownlee as their Woman of the Year.

The annual recognition, given out at the Starlight Soiree fundraiser, is done by random draw. Golden residents nominated their favourite “Shero” at the soiree, as well as the week leading up to it.

This woman could be anyone important in your life who is deemed outstanding in the community.

Brownlee was nominated by an anonymous friend for being a, “really positive woman, friendly, generous, always there to help everyone. She is the reincarnation of an angel.”

As the woman of the year, Brownlee was given a gift basket, full of items generously donated by local businesses.

The annual soiree is the centre’s largest fundraiser, and helps them deliver their regular programs such as the Safe Homes Program.
