On April 5, the Women’s and Children’s Alliance was honored to present the 23rd annual Tribute to Women and Industry (TWIN) Luncheon at the Boise Centre. The 2016 TWIN Awards Luncheon was truly remarkable.

TWIN Honorary Chair and ESI President Neil Nelson beautifully shared his personal insight on why the WCA means so much to him and his family. Neil also talked about the importance of the WCA’s work for clients who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assault.

Teri Stein presented the Joyce Stein Award to the Ahlquist family, Tommy and Shanna and their children Thomas, Brooklyn, Allie and Chloe. The Ahlquist family exemplifies how one family can make a profound difference in building a better world. At TWIN, Tommy shared words from his son Thomas on how the WCA is a guardian of hope for women and children seeking freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault—this is only possible through community members like the Ahlquist family.

The 2016 TWIN Honorees included 53 extraordinary women and Sunday, the Ada County Courthouse dog. These women and Sunday are unique individuals who are not only shining examples in their professional lives, but also in their dedication to our community. Please visit our TWIN 2016 Press Release to find the list of all the 2016 Honorees here. We congratulate each of our 2016 TWINs for their wonderful work in the Treasure Valley, along with their companies and those individuals who nominated them for this prestigious award.

The WCA is extremely grateful for all of the companies and individual business owners who are our financial and in-kind Corporate Pillars. Your support means the world to the work we do for our clients. Through the support of our Corporate Pillars we are able to help our clients on their journey to safety, healing and freedom. Many thanks for being there for the WCA.  You are truly appreciated.
