Influential Women of Northwest Indiana’s Supporter of the Year award recognizes one individual, male or female, from the region that has shown outstanding support in nominating women in business.
The Torch Award honors Jenny Harty-Lynn, a 2015 finalist that was nominated more than any other nominee. Harty-Lynn was diagnosed with cancer, and she passed on August 26, 2015. Her determination and passion for life, combined with her genuine desire to help people, served as the inspiration for this award. Each year, the Torch Award is given to individuals that share Harty-Lynn’s passion, commitment and selflessness.
Each year, the event donates to local charities and nonprofits that benefit women and children. Read about our local charities and nonprofits.
