The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce Women in Business had invited the community to the 12th Annual APEX Awards presented by Southwest Florida Distributing, Publishing, Web Advertising to honor the women of SWFL who make a difference in our community in every aspect of their lives. The APEX Awards will be held on Sept. 30 at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
The Chamber received 21 nominations for the 2017 APEX Awards. The finalists will be honored and the APEX Award recipient(s) will be announced at the July 12 Women in Business meeting to be held at Six Bends Harley-Davidson from 4 to 6 p.m.
In 2016, the 11th Annual APEX Awards honored Cyndi Doragh, financial representative for Alliance Financial Group of South Florida, Inc., and Tessa LeSage, director of Social Innovation and Sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, as outstanding individuals in Lee County. During the event a silent auction took place to raise money for two scholarships to be awarded in our APEX recipients names. Those scholarships were awarded to a non-traditional female student, demonstrating financial need, with preference given to single, divorced or widowed women with children.
The APEX Awards recognize outstanding individuals in our community who are members of the chamber and excel in the areas of professionalism, philanthropy and leadership. The Title Sponsor for this year’s event is Southwest Florida Distributing, Publishing, Web Advertising. Other sponsorship opportunities are also available.
