2013 Helping Hands Award Dinner

Save the date for the 29th Annual Helping Hands Award Dinner! This year's gala event will be held on May 1, 2013 and will honor Ann Manion of Women's Care Center.

There are those people whose work shines outside the spotlight of public notice. They give selflessly and patiently of themselves, never seeking recognition for the time and talent they dedicate to their cause of choice.

One such person is Ann Manion. Since 1988 she has served as volunteer President of Women's Care Center, the nation's largest pregnancy resource center. The organization expects to serve 21,000 pregnant women in 2012. She was also a founding board member of Hannah's House, a maternity home for pregnant teenagers, which was jointly founded by St. Joseph Hospital of Mishawaka and Women's Care Center in 1993.

During her tenure as President, Women's Care Center has grown from one small center on St. Louis Boulevard in South Bend to 17 sites in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. It is a testament to Ann's leadership that Women's Care Center is funded solely through donations.

Ann was a member of the second class of women to gain entrance to the University of Notre Dame, graduating magna cum laude in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in business adminstration. She was a senour manager with Price Waterhouse from 1977 to 1988 and is married to the Honorable Daniel Manion, a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. They have four children - Mary, Katherine, Patrick, and Michael - ranging in age from 14 to 24.

Humble, dedicated, determined and caring, Ann deflects any praise for her work to the greater good done by Women's Care Center. Join us in honoring one of our commity's true assets and be a part of this Celebration of Life.
