Three women and an organization are to be honored on Monday, June 7, when the Long Island Women’s Agenda holds its 10th Annual Awards Celebration at The Fox Hollow in Woodbury.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Nassau), above left, will receive the Community Leader award. A member of Congress since 1996, McCarthy has been an advocate for gun control legislation. She is Long Island's most popular U.S. representative, a Newsday/Siena poll found last fall. 

Janice Ashley, above center, group director and senior vice president for Signature Bank, is to receive the Corporate Leader award. She is responsible for the development and management of a private client banking group serving small and middle market businesses, according to LIWA.

Cheryl L. Fratello, above right, a partner in the law firm Fratello & Fox PC in Woodbury, is to receive the Emerging Leader award. A former executive vice president of the organization, she established the emerging leaders committee “to attract young professional women into community service and engage them in collaborative projects.”

Registration and cocktails begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $90 for members and students, and $125 for nonmembers. For information about tickets and sponsorships, call 516-677-5492, e-mail info@liwa.org or visit www.liwa.org.
