“There is one time in my life I have been speechless and that was when I received the Heroine of Washington Award from the March of Dimes,” said 2017 Heroines of Washington Award recipient Christine Espenshade of JLL Capital Markets. “No one commits to a non-profit or volunteers for the recognition, but being acknowledged for my work with the Pratt Library among a group of successful business women was one of the greatest moments of my life. The recognition from my colleagues, peers, and the entire business community has inspired me to do more and encourage others to do the same.”

Winners will be formally recognized at a black-tie awards gala Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner. Guests will include directors, CEOs, and other high-level individuals from local corporations and government agencies. Proceeds will support March of Dimes programs, research, community services, education, and advocacy.

Since 2001, the March of Dimes has honored over 112 “Heroines” and raised more than $2.8 million to support the March of Dimes mission. Sponsors include Vencore and TSI.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For 80 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.
