The YWCA is pleased to honor Dan & Kim Hermann at its 26th Annual Tribute to Achievement to be held on May 14, 2015 at the Evansville Country Club. Over the past 26 years, the YWCA Tribute to Achievement has recognized individuals and organizations that have made a significant difference in our community. The funds raised by this inspiring event have been used to support critical programs for the YWCA.

Dan and Kim Hermann have built a life focused on their family and those less fortunate in the community. Both Dan and Kim are actively involved with Evansville’s hospitals. Kim was instrumental in leading the campaign for Evansville’s Ronald McDonald House. At the time it was built, Evansville was the smallest community to undertake such an endeavor. Youth organizations are at the top of the couple’s philanthropic and volunteer activities. Dan is a Life Board Member and past president of the Boys and Girls Club. A new preschool at Holy Rosary parish will benefit from a recent capital campaign under Dan’s leadership. Kim is a long‐time board member and past president of the YWCA, where she left her mark through the start‐up of a valuable college scholarship program for at‐risk girls and numerous other activities. Many other local organizations have—and continue to be—recipients of the Hermanns’ generosity, ultimately making southwestern Indiana a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will be on hand to present a special proclamation honoring the Hermanns for their service to the Evansville community. The YWCA will also award the annual Berkley Ann Branson scholarships to Young Women of Promise who have graduated from our Live Y’ers program. The fund was created in memory of one of Evansville’s most promising young women to help other promising young women achieve their vocational dreams. Since spring 2002, the YWCA has awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to 91 graduates of the Live Y’ers program.

The event is open to the public and tickets are available through the YWCA of Evansville. Contact the YWCA at (812) 422‐ 1191 for more information about tickets, corporate tables and sponsorships.

The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The YWCA has been serving the Evansville area since 1911 and from its inception has provided housing and services for women and girls. The Evansville YWCA is a member of the YWCA of the U.S.A., the oldest and largest women’s membership movement in the country.

Over the years, YWCA programs have changed to meet the evolving needs of women and girls. In 1979, the YWCA opened the first domestic violence shelter in Evansville. Other current programs include a Transition Housing Program for women in recovery, Emergency Shelter for homeless women and children, an after‐ school and mentoring program, called Live Y’ers, for at‐risk girls in grades three through 12, and a Summer Fun day camp for school‐aged children. Special programs and events for the general public are also offered. Visit www.ywcaevansville.org for more information.
