CBS 17 hosted a reception today to honor the four finalists in our “Remarkable Women” contest and to announce our winner who is headed to The Mel Robbins show in New York City to be honored with other women from across the country.

Lisa Overcash was selected as the winner for her incredible determination and caring. Overcash tells us she is thrilled about the opportunity to visit New York City and meet dozens of other remarkable women later this month.

We were honored to play host to the Mayor of Raleigh, Mary-Ann Baldwin, who proclaimed today as “Remarkable Women Day” in the City of Raleigh in honor the incredible women being a positive force for change in our communities. Guests also included First Lady of North Carolina, Kristin Cooper, who highlighted the state-wide efforts to acknowledge the talents and achievements of women.
