Martin to be honored
The National Assn. of Women Business Owners-Orange County (NAWBO-OC) will salute Laguna Beach resident Margarita Martin as Colombo-American Education Foundation's 2010 OC "Member of the Year" at the 15th Annual Remarkable Women Awards Luncheon on Oct. 5. Martin will join some 15 other women who provide leadership to business, trade and civic organizations in Orange County.
The gala awards ceremony's theme is "Inspiration, Courage and Hope," and will also pay tribute to Kathy Gardarian for a lifetime of achievement while recognizing Angela Cortright as business owner of the year and Allyson Ames as "entrepreneur to watch."
"Margarita embodies the mission of NAWBO-OC and is an inspiration to us all," said association President Kathy Dawson, of Dawson & Dawson, a national search and local staffing firm. "She exhibits a passion for what she does, and exemplifies the theme 'Inspiration, Courage and Hope' with the integrity, tenacity and acumen she brings to her work."
