Beth McDonald 2017 Woman of the YearBeth McDonald and Ken Peterson of Shea Homes Congratulate 2017 Woman of the Year, Elizabeth Singleton.

For the past three years, Shea Homes® has partnered with 99.9 KEZ to present the Beth McDonald Woman of the Year Award, which recognizes extraordinary local women and the immense impact they’ve had on their communities. On Thursday, February 22, the monthly winners from the past year gathered at the Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch for the crowning of the 2017 Woman of the Year: Elizabeth Singleton.

“The Beth McDonald Woman of the Year Program is a celebration of the women that are making the Valley a better place,” said Ken Peterson, Shea Homes Arizona Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Elizabeth Singleton is an outstanding example of the difference one person can make. Her compassion and dedication to the people of her community is truly inspiring.”

Singleton runs a nonprofit organization called Build us H.O.P.E. that provides Tiny Homes for some of the city’s most vulnerable populations, including homeless veterans, the mentally and/or physically disabled. Elizabeth is a longtime advocate for the homeless population and the mentally ill. Prior to running Build us H.O.P.E, she ran Singleton Housing, an organization that provided supportive housing for those in need.

As the winner of the 2017 Woman of the Year Award, Ms. Singleton received a $7,500 check, an all-expense paid weekend at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa, and a stunning trophy from Tiffany’s – all well deserved, for a woman who dedicates so much of her life to the care and support of others. Congratulations to Singleton, and to other 2017 monthly winners, all of whom are responsible for making the Valley a brighter and more compassionate place to live: Dawn Northup, Lisa Strohman, Diane Herst, Candice Villalobos, Tiana Zang, Tammy Roecker, Constance Contes, Suzanna Cottrell-Olsen, Kandice Shannon, and Leah Thomas.
