2019 Woman of Influence Award Dinner and VIP Reception
Celebrating Nydia Han, 6abc investigative reporter and Sunday Action News co-anchor
On Thursday, April 25, 2019 Pearl S. Buck International will host the annual Woman of Influence Award dinner at the Estate Pavilion on the grounds of the Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark, in Hilltown, Pennsylvania. A VIP reception will take place from 5 – 6 PM. The dinner and award presentation, which will include remarks from Ms. Han, will take place from 6 – 8 PM. Catering will be provided by Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods & Catering.
Originally established in 1978 as the Woman of the Year Award, the Woman of Influence Award honors women, who like Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author, activist, and humanitarian Pearl S. Buck, have distinguished themselves in their career, devotion to family and pursuit of humanitarian goals.
The 2019 Woman of Influence honoree is Nydia Han, 6abc’s Emmy award-winning Consumer Investigative Reporter, Troubleshooter, and co-anchor of Action News Sunday mornings. Ms. Han is also the creator of the documentary series, #ThisIsAmerica, which shares unique American stories and encourages the audience to be positive agents of change and unity in the community. In addition, Ms. Han is on the community advisory board for the Asian American Women’s Coalition, enjoys mentoring aspiring journalists, and is passionate about raising awareness and funds for lung cancer research.
Woman of Influence, an elegant charitable event, will attract more than 200 community and business leaders who will celebrate Ms. Han. Proceeds from this inspirational event will support the important intercultural, humanitarian, and preservation work of Pearl S. Buck International which carries out Pearl S. Buck’s legacy of bridging cultures and changing lives.
Event registration and raffle chances for a week’s stay at a private residence in Cape May, NJ are now available at www.pearlsbuck.org/womanofinfluence. There will be a live auction at the event for a personal tour of 6abc’s studio with Nydia Han (graciously donated by Ms. Han) as well as a gift certificate to a Philadelphia restaurant to round out a special day. Seating for the Woman of Influence award dinner is limited so please register early. Please note the VIP reception requires a separate ticket.
