The Altadena Chapter of Top Ladies of Distinction Announce Annual Luncheon

The Altadena Chapter of Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. will hold its 18th annual Status of Women Recognition Luncheon on Saturday, April 28, at the Brookside Golf Club Mediterranean Room in Pasadena.

This year, the chapter will recognize and honor four distinguished women in law enforcement in the Altadena/Pasadena area and Los Angeles: Commander Cheryl Moody, Pasadena Police Department; Captain Vicki Stuckey, Altadena Sheriff’s Station; Lieutenant Yolanda Clay, Altadena Sheriff’s Station; and Detective Tracey Benjamin, Los Angeles Police Department.

Collectively these women contribute outstanding service to their communities, an Altadena Chapter announcement said.

Top Ladies Of Distinction, Inc. was chartered in the state of Texas on September 8, 1964 as a non-profit educational, humanitarian organization. As an international, service-oriented organization, it has a primary mission of mentoring and developing teens and parenting the teen organization (Top Teens of America), enhancing the lives of senior citizens, beautifying the community, recognizing the status of women, and engaging in community partnerships with local and national organizations in a collaborative effort to carry out their programs and projects.

Chapters nationwide support the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), United Negro College Fund (UNCF), and the awarding of national scholarships to at least one beneficiary in each of the organization’s six geographic areas. The Altadena Chapter is part of Area VI.

The Top Ladies of Distinction has also included in its programs a cooperative peer education facet with Top Teens of America and the National Foundation, March of Dimes.
