On Saturday, January 28th, Kingwood Rotarians Carolyn Wise, and Donna Ballard, were honored as FamilyTime's "2001 Women of Achievement" from FamilyTime Crisis and Counciling Center.  The Hearts of Gold Gala honoring 13 women that have made a difference in the lives of others was held at the Marriot Airport Hotel.

The purpose of the gala is to focus attention on domestic violence, and the needs to the victims.  There were 142 candles burning at the gala in rememberance of the 142 victims that died last year in Texas due to domestic violence.

Kingwood Rotary Club sponsored a table at the event, and also donated $2,000 during the event to FamilyTime. 

Carolyn Wise was honored in the category for "Special Recognition" in honor of her outstanding work, and Donna Ballard was honored in the category of outstanding "Volunteer".  A total of 10 Kingwood Rotarians, plus family and friends, attended the event to support and honor both of these Kingwood Rotarians.

Way to go...Carolyn, and Donna!
