The Valley Women's Health Initiative is seeking nominations for “outstanding women” who have made positive contributions to the community. 
Award winners will be recognized Oct. 3 at the annual Women Making a Difference in the Valley Tribute Luncheon and Fundraiser at Grassy Hill Lodge in Derby.
Over the past 12 years, 84 women from various walks of life who live or work in the Naugatuck Valley have been honored. Individuals, business leaders, and organizations are invited to submit nominations.

Nominees should exemplify the multi-dimensional role women play in today's society as demonstrated by the contributions they have made to positively affect their community. Nominees must live or work in Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Naugatuck, Oxford, Seymour, or Shelton.

A nomination may be submitted at or mailed to the Hewitt Breast Wellness Center at Griffin Hospital, c/o M. Vallillo, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby, 06418. To obtain a nomination form, call Marianne, 203-732-1300 or email
Nominations should be submitted by July 30. Selected honorees and their nominator will attend the luncheon as guests of the Valley Women's Health Initiative. Luncheon reservations will go on sale in August.

The Valley Women's Health Initiative is a coalition of health agencies, community leaders, and volunteers, from the Valley community working toward the common goal of improving women’s health and addressing women’s health issues, including breast cancer awareness and heart disease. 

Proceeds from the luncheon will be earmarked for the Griffin Hospital/Valley Breast Care Fund, which was established in 2001 to ensure that no person, regardless of age or socio-economic condition, is denied screening mammograms or diagnostic testing for breast cancer.
