W.O.W. Woman of Year Celebrates Dawn Oakley Jones

   Women’s Own Worth will recognize Dawn Oakley Jones at the Governor’s Mansion this Friday night as their 2022 W.O.W. Woman of the Year while unveiling their most recently completed Transition Villas.

   Dawn’s community service is endless. Her love for children and their families is awe inspiring especially if you ever witnessed her at First Ward Living Grace food panty in Pine Bluff. Dawn does everything she can in her spare time to make sure families in her community of Pine Bluff do not go without. As she comes in contact with many individuals of all walks of life her smile and love shine bright through her service. Music is important to Dawn and she spends time helping the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s educational program which enables children to further their musical education here in Arkansas.

   Dawn first attended WOWapolooza in 2016 and continues to make Women’s Own Worth one of the many organizations she supports year-round. Dawn and her family have been key sponsors at Women’s Own Worth’s WOWapalooza event for six years and counting. Most recently Dawn put on her dancing shoes to cut a rug for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Dawn say, “I have no rhythm but plan on giving it my all to help children.” She put her dancing shoes on and gracefully danced away with the mirror ball trophy. Giving it her all is what Dawn does constantly when it comes to helping others.

   Tickets to this year’s WOWapalooza event which will be held October 7th at the Governor’s Mansion are available at www.Womensownworth.com.

   You can also support this cause by donating on their website also. W.O.W. is completing their first two villas to support victims of domestic and violent crime and needs your help to start the next two. Jajuan Archer founder of W.O.W. says, “It’s the people that care and W.O.W. supporters such as Dawn Jones and Sissy’s Log Cabin are the ones that have helped us not only build our first two Transition Villas but continue to provide the primary mission of mental health therapy. People really do care about those that have been unjustly victimized by violence.”

   Jajuan also mentioned that Women’s Own Worth receives no Federal or State funding and has no paid employees. When they receive donations half goes towards the next villas and the rest goes to mental health and W.O.W.’s other programs. Check out and support Women’s Own Worth. They are doing amazing things in our state.
