The Zonta Club of Burbank Area is proud to announce that Barbara Howell, Executive Director of the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, has been selected as “Burbank’s Woman of the Year” for 2009. The “Woman of the Year” is an annual event sponsored by Zonta to honor exemplary women in Burbank who make outstanding contributions to our community.
The Zonta Club of Burbank Area will honor Barbara Howell at its annual Woman of the Year Luncheon, Saturday, November 7, 2009, at the Castaway Restaurant in Burbank at 11:30am.
Barbara has been on the frontlines of this year’s historic economic crisis. Through it all, Barbara has worked tirelessly to educate the community about the growth in need, and bring in the donations necessary to keep the agency’s pantry and cupboards full. Each day, Barbara, her staff and volunteers, touch the lives of the neediest in Burbank, and give hope by extending a helping hand.
