The Los Angeles Chapter of Soroptimist International named Wendy Lazarus the recipient of the Ruby Award, which honors women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary differences in the lives of women or girls.  Honorees are women who have worked to improve the lives of other women and/or girls.  Their work has had a significant impact on the local or global community and it inspires and encourages other women. The program begins at the local-level where clubs recognize a woman in their community. Clubs submit their entry to the region-level where the region selects a woman to honor at the region conference. At the federation-level, one woman is selected to receive a $5,000 donation to her favorite charitable organization.
