About The 2020 Luncheon


Congratulations to all the honorees that have been selected as Women of Distinction for 2020!

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to have our annual luncheon to celebrate the 30th anniversary together, and so wanted to honor the women through a video.

Please enjoy the video honoring these women for their commitment and dedication to our member organizations in Montgomery County!

Luncheon Information

Honor A Volunteer:

Representatives will work with their organizations to select and nominate their Woman of Distinction. Criteria for selection are at each organization’s discretion. Due to the philanthropic nature of Montgomery County Women’s Council of Organizations, most candidates are typically selected based on their volunteerism and service to the community.

Once the honoree has been selected, a brief biography, of no more than 300 words, as well as a digital photo of the honoree should be submitted to the designated board member. The bio. and photo must be received no later than two months prior to the luncheon for inclusion in the printed program.

  • Member organizations must have paid their annual dues to MCWCO before submitting an honoree for their Woman of Distinction.

  • MCWCO reserves the right to edit the information for the program and award presentation.

Most organizations like to purchase a corsage for their Woman of Distinction. (Ordering a corsage is optional, but customary as a nice way to honor your WOD.) Our floral sponsor, The Blooming Idea, offers corsages at special rates. Each organization is asked to contact and order The Blooming Idea directly at 281-362-8977 to place an order and make arrangements for payment.

The corsages will be delivered to The Woodlands Waterway Marriott the morning of the luncheon.

Organizations are not required to purchase through The Blooming Idea and may purchase corsages from the florist of their choice.
