Women’s Philanthropy Award Nomination

Stepping Up for Philanthropy

Women’s Philanthropy Society Accepting Nominations for Outstanding Tri-State Women

Nominations are being accepted through Feb. 17, 2023 for three awards from the Women’s Philanthropy Society of Cabell Huntington Hospital.

The Christie Kinsey Focus Award, the Kitty Hage Lifetime Achievement Award and the Abigail McNeely Youth Service Award will be presented at the 23rd annual Women’s Philanthropy Society’s luncheon on Saturday, March 4 at the Guyan Golf and Country Club. These distinctive awards honor Tri-State women who exemplify the heart, strength and compassion of our community.

  • The Christie Kinsey Focus Award: honors achievements in volunteerism, pioneering in women’s health, community service, professional achievement and home and family.
  • The Kitty Hage Lifetime Achievement Award: presented to an individual whose life’s work has been dedicated to humanitarian efforts. The award is designed for someone who has not sought recognition for her deeds but has worked solely to better her community and the quality of life for others.
  • The Abigail McNeely Youth Services Award: is presented to an individual under the age of 18 who has gone above and beyond to give back to an organization or community project.

“The annual Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon affords attendees an opportunity to gather and honor women who are making a positive impact in our community,” said Christie Kinsey, founding member of the Women’s Philanthropy Society at Cabell Huntington Hospital. “Every dollar donated to the luncheon supports women’s and children’s causes at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Each gift combines with others to create a larger gift, enabling everyone to be a philanthropist.”
