Power Women of Long Island presented by Catholic Health will honor those fearless females who make the region a thriving and vibrant place to live, work, live and play during a special celebration Nov. 17 at The Mansion at Oyster Bay.

Extraordinary women from a broad spectrum of the business and nonprofit world will be recognized for their accomplishments and their commitment to making a positive impact on Long Island. More than 300 people will be in attendance to enjoy the ultimate networking and celebratory evening. 

“We look forward to bringing together Power Women from Long Island to celebrate their accomplishments and to connect with like minded women. Nothing is more powerful than connection,” said Elizabeth Schneps Aloni, SVP Schneps Events.

The event is hosted by Schneps Media, publishers of the Long Island Press, Dan’s Papers, Noticia and Behind the Hedges, which is proud to bring together the most extraordinary women to connect, support one another, do business and build community. Because when women support women, amazing things happen.
