The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of San Diego County hosted its 47th annual Presentation Tea on Nov. 3 to announce its 2012 Women of Dedication honorees. Rachel and Rose Camacho hosted the high tea at their Rancho Santa Fe home in The Crosby Estates.
Among the 15 women to be awarded for their years of fundraising efforts and community service are three Rancho Santa Fe residents: Sharon Culver Considine, Susan Kazmarek-Biddick and Martha (“Muffy”) Walker.
The 2012 Women of Dedication were nominated by some 400 previous honorees. A Selection Committee, comprised of all past Women of Dedication, then meets in September to review the nominations and choose the next “class.” The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary president is informed of the committee’s choices and a dozen, long-stemmed yellow roses are sent to each honoree notifying her of her selection.
The Women of Dedication are formally honored at a spring luncheon. This year it will be held March 28 at San Diego Sheraton Hotel & Marina.
