The banquet will be held at Glen Oaks Country Club, 30500 West 13 Mile Road, Farmington Hills, Michigan.

*In order to mark the fact that this is the 35th Anniversary of the WONder Woman award, the WON Foundation is elevating one previously recognized WONder Woman to the status of Super WONder Woman for the first time. The Honorable Deborah Macon is our first Super WONder Woman and we congratulate her for continuing her distinguished and steadfast work to encourage, train, mentor and support women and girls in Oakland County who wish to take a leadership role in public service.

Each WONder Woman honoree excels in the following areas:

~Contributes to the community beyond that which is required in their employment;

~Demonstrates character, commitment and leadership; and,

~Assists women and girls in reaching full leadership potential through civic engagement, personal and professional contacts.
