DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- Dothan's Zonta Club honored volunteers and several organizations that work with women at its annual awards luncheon, Monday afternoon.

This annual event shows how the money raised by the club locally supports our community. They announced the winner for the Young Women in Public Affairs and Jane M. Klauseman scholarships, as well as recognizing outstanding volunteers through the Phyllis Walch Award. Gifts were also awarded to their local service partners (Chrysallis Home for Girls, Girls Inc. of Dothan, Exchange Center for Child Abuse Prevention and House of Ruth).

During the past year, the local Zonta Club raised more than $20,000 that will go to these places.

"Zonta looks to empower and educate women locally and globally. We work specifically with young women and older women that may be in difficult situations. We do a lot of hands on service locally with the House of Ruth at the domestic violence shelter," said Zonta Club President Tami Page.

570 community service hours were logged last year for the organization.
