About the Competition

If you want to give back to the Tampa Bay Community, here is an excellent way to help children with a serious illness or a family dealing with as tragic problem. I would like to nominate you for Tampa Bay Woman of the Year!

In 2011 our contestants raised over $38,000 that directly benefited numerous families in our community.

This is very simply a 9-week competition where you can help contribute in a big way. This event is a fund-raiser that culminates with an elegant fashion show and VIP after party hosted by Neiman Marcus on November 3, 2012.

To compete, all you have to do is raise the most contributions by:

  • Getting your friends, family members and co-workers to attend the fashion show by selling them a ticket to the event at Neiman which includes hors d’oeuvres & spirits
  • Asking local businesses to sponsor you & in turn they will get exposure in publications leading up to the event as well as at the fashion show
  • Contributing Silent Auction items at the night of the event
  • Selling Advertisement for the fashion show program.

“Raising money for such a worthy cause was much easier than I thought. There were so many fun ideas that we all really enjoyed the campaign & it was truly a pleasure working with the Westchase Charitable Foundation Board.”
Kristie Johnson, TBWOY 2011
