The Lakes Area Professional Women organization will honor two employers and a Woman of the Year at its annual recognition luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria. Doors open at 11 a.m.

Each year, the group honors a Woman of the Year, a woman who has made significant contributions to the community and to the organization, has achieved professional accomplishments, and who advocates for other women. The honoree is revealed at the event.

The organization also honors two Employers of the Year, businesses that it determines promote fairness in the workplace and offer leadership opportunities to female employees. This year's honorees are Lakes Area Graphix and SignWorx, Inc. as the large employer, and Hair Profiles Salon and Day Spa as the small employer.
