Women’s International Center Living Legacy Awards


The Women’s International Center Living Legacy Awards were held Feb. 22 at Crowne Plaza in San Diego. For nearly 30 years, the Rancho Santa Fe-based nonprofit organization has celebrated the accomplishments and contributions of more than 300 people from around the world.

The organization was founded in 1982 to acknowledge, honor, encourage and educate women. In addition to the Living Legacy Awards ceremonies, Women’s International Center co-hosts the Spotlight on Women Speaker Series and provides scholarships and sisterships in support of women’s education and empowerment. Co-chairs of the event were Sally B. Thornton and Marianne McDonald.
