ainbridge Island’s working women do something more as they juggle the many demands of work and family. They also contribute, over and over again, to the philanthropic health and civic life of their community. They give to our auctions. They take on leadership positions and help to educate our children. They volunteer for groups working to house, clothe and feed islanders in need. So this week, take a moment to say thank you to the many women who, in one fashion or another, make this island run. Their contributions are immeasurable. The profiles featured in this section are paid advertising.

We at The Bainbridge Island Review salute them!
