Awards Recognition Banquet

Each year, SI/Bidwell Rancho, recognizes the honorees at their annual Awards Recognition Banquet held in March this year in collaboration with International Women’s Day. The purpose is to celebrate the wonderful work women and girls are doing in our communities and present our Honorees with certificates of recognition, along with their award checks. This is a special evening where honorees are brought together to tell their stories, and are recognized for “Living their Dreams”.
