Registration opens for BBB’s Women in Business Networking awards gala

DAYTON — Women in Business Networking (WiBN), a program of the Better Business Bureau, will be hosting the WiBN Women of Impact Gala on Oct. 8 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at the Mandalay Banquet & Event Center in Moraine.

The cost to attend is $99 per individual ticket, $180 per couple ticket, $900 per table of eight including an honoree and $1,000 per table of eight without an honoree. This formal event honoring 2022 WiBN Women of Impact will include an elegant dinner, music and dancing and will be safari themed.

The Women of Impact honor recognizes women in the Miami Valley who are exceptional in their roles and respected in their fields. They are causing more than just a ripple in the public arena and in their communities and they “light a spark,” or make an impression. Attendees will also celebrate the efforts of the Jeanne Porter Career Achievement Award recipient. A list of the honorees is available at

“We are excited to honor the class of 2022 Women of Impact that have blazed a trail through our marketplace, which can sometimes feel like a jungle. They’ve masterfully shown us how to be our best personally and professionally. They make our marketplace a better place to work, play and live,” Sheri Sword, the WiBN executive director, said. We look forward to celebrating these amazing women late into the evening in our animal-print best.”

The event is sponsored by many local organizations, including Dayton 24/7 Now (WKEF/WRGT), iHeart Radio, The Chic Guide, The Mandalay Banquet & Event Center, Prime Time Party Rental and Party Pleasers.
