OWA's Champagne Breakfast was back in-person and better than ever to kick off Vision Expo East! OWA members, sponsors, and guests turned out in force to honor four extraordinary women and their impact on the OWA and the optical industry: Erinn Morgan (Pleiades Award), Laura Dorris (Pyxis Award), and Emerging Leader Award recipients Katie Lauver and Jennifer Stewart, OD. Gotham Hall exceeded expectations as this year's breakfast venue, and Deb Bulken, OWA President, offered special thanks to EssilorLuxottica for their sole sponsorship of this annual event.
OWA members, sponsors, and guests gathered to recognize this year's four award honorees and to celebrate OWA's 25 years of supporting and promoting the professional development of women in the optical industry. The annual Friday event was once again held at the Javits, offering optical professionals easy access to networking with colleagues while enjoying cocktails and cookies.
