This distinguished award is annually presented to those who exceptionally serve those 62 and better across the Philadelphia region. This year, Presby celebrates the 10th anniversary of the award.

“We are thrilled to honor these distinguished women leaders,” said President & CEO, Judee M. Bavaria. “Each of these women is serving the Philadelphia community in distinct and impactful ways.
