WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Women who are working to make the community a better place were honored Thursday night.

More than 60 women were nominated for the YWCA's annual Women of Achievement awards.

Our own Heather Setzler was nominated for an award this year.

The awards celebrate the accomplishments of women in the Cape Fear region. More than 600 people, a record crowd, attended the awards ceremony at the Wilmington Convention Center.

"These people are working, going to school, raising families, volunteering and going above and beyond what most men and women are able to do in their personal lives," said Amy Mangus, the chair of the YWCA Women of Achievement awards.

All the money made at the awards ceremony supports the YWCA.
