Last year the ladies behind ChicagonistaLIVE! celebrated women at the Chicago Auto Show. This year they return to do the same, with Women Driving Excellence. On Women's Day, Tuesday, February 11, they'll showcase women who not only embody excellence themselves, but also inspire, encourage, and enable others to be excellent.

WDE honors trailblazing women who start, accelerate, fuel and steer others to excellence. This year, eight amazing women – Karyn Calabrese (restaurateur and author), Mary Couzin (CEO and Founder of Chicago Toy and Game), Jory DesJardins, Elisa Camahort Page and Lisa Stone (BlogHer founders), Susanna Jung (president and CEO of Price Futures Group), Sherren Leigh (CEO of Today’s Chicago Woman magazine) and Natalie Martinez (NBC Chicago reporter) – will receive recognition for their outstanding efforts.

2013 WDE honoree Anupy Singla (celebrity author and entrepreneur) will emcee this event and guests will enjoy a free gift (while supplies last) and several live performances from Broadway in Chicago, St. Therese Chinese Catholic School, Miss Lori, Andrea Metcalf and more. For more information or to register for this event online, visit www.womendrivingexcellence.com. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

The first 100 people to register will also receive free admission to the Chicago Auto Show, so register quickly!
