The League of Women Voters of Santa Monica will honor four local women for their contributions to the welfare of the bay city.

The league invites the community to join the celebration on March 27 at the Penthouse Terrace of Ocean House at 7 p.m.

Education activist Irene Zivi, Deputy City Manager Kate Vernez, Police Activities League Director Eula Fritz and the league’s own Rose Kaufman will be recognized.

The league will also be celebrating the organization’s 80th anniversary. Since 1934, the league in Santa Monica has advocated for government that is accountable, representative, transparent and responsive. The organization has presented candidate forums, inviting candidates regardless of the level of campaign contributions they have received. It has maintained a strict policy of non-partisan action.

“The League of Women Voters of Santa Monica has played an important role in the civic education of our community because of our firm belief that a democracy can only thrive when its citizens are fully informed and engaged in the political process,” league President Ann Williams said in a news release.

A donation of $40 can be paid at the door or by PayPal at RSVP for the celebration by calling (310) 692-1494 or by e-mail at
