The 14 men were singled out for their efforts to level the playing field and support women. They were Dr. Freddie Fu, Judge Gene Strassburger, Andrew Hoover, George Kantor, Lou Rood, Jim Abraham, Gregg Dietz, Tanner Fitzgerald, state Rep.

Event chairs were Tom and Bonnie VanKirk and Gregg and Yu-Ling Behr.
