“The world needs strong women. Women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved, women who live bravely, both tender and fierce, women of indomitable will.” – Amy Tenney
We celebrate the strength and fortitude this night of four women, Chef Sarah Grueneberg, Chef Meg Galus, Chef Ina Pinkney and Industry Leader Mary Kay Bonoma. Although each has their own identity, each are uniquely similar as women of strong character, leadership skills, perseverance, integrity and fortitude. We celebrate these inspirational women and recognize their contribution to the hospitality field and to society in general. Please join us in celebrating these inspiring women.
