The Women of Achievement Luncheon is Zonta's largest fundraiser of the year.  One-third of the proceeds are given to Zonta International to help fund programs that help women across the globe.  The remaining two-thirds stays local - right here in Cape Girardeau - to help women in need. 

In 2012 more than 400 people attended the Zonta Women of Achievement Luncheon. The focus of our event is to honor and recognize local women for their accomplishments and contributions to our community.  We also unveiled our Club's newest partnership with the Haitian-American Caucus in Haiti.

Angel Woodruff is our 2013 Celebration Award recipient. Angel is the First Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Cape Girardeau County and attended law school at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where she also worked in the school's domestic violence clinic for women and children. She joined the Cape Girardeau Prosecuting Attorney's Office in 1998, where her caseload consists mostly of murders and other violent crimes, drug crimes, domestic violence cases and sex offenses. She has served as a special prosecutor for several Missouri counties and even co-wrote an article about prosecuting and defending domestic violence cases, which was published in the Journal of the Missouri Bar. We honor Angel for her efforts to make the world a better place for women and their families.

Dolly Jewel will receive our Lifetime Achievement Award. Dolly, a graduate of the University of Missouri, became active in Cape Girardeau after moving here in 1965. She has volunteered at Southeast Hospital since 1978, completing more than 6,000 service hours. She has been active in Church Women United, Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland Council, Read to Succeed, PEO and Tri-Psi. Her main focus, however, has been the Alzheimer's Association in Southeast Missouri. She has been active in her support group and the Walk to End Alzheimer's. In 2008, she received the Missouri Public Service Award for her 20 years with the association.
