The YWCA Dayton will be hosting its YWomen – This is My Story Breakfast Fundraiser on Wednesday, October 2, 2013; the event will start at 8:00 am, registration 7:30 at the Schuster Center. The YWCA Dayton and the YWomen Committee are requesting members of the community to identify and nominate an individual for the Marsha Froelich Survivor Award. The award will be given to an outstanding female whose words, actions or demeanor serve to exemplify, inspire, set an example, and celebrate the spirit of a survivor who has overcome difficult odds, conditions, or situations and exemplifies caring, compassion and devotion to helping others.
The award is in honor of Marsha Froelich, a former YWCA of Dayton Vice President and Woman of Influence honoree; she was also recognized as a Dayton Daily News Top Ten Woman, a Woman of Valor by Beth Abraham Synagogue and was a recipient of the Dayton Bar Association’s Liberty Bell Award. She was a graduate of Dayton’s Fairview High School and the University of Michigan. Marsha retired as Executive Director of Clothes That Work! shortly before her passing in 2011.
Mrs. Froelich was a breast cancer survivor and through her efforts she privately counseled women with breast cancer. Through her dedication to the community, she raised millions for underserved people in the Miami Valley Region. In 2011, Marsha was named Outstanding Fundraising Executive by the Greater Dayton Association of Fundraising Professionals. But, most of all, Marsha is remembered for her positive spirit as well as her passion for helping others.
