Program Overview

Just as Seattle Storm players provide inspiration as role models for young girls and boys across the Puget Sound, many other Pacific Northwest women also serve as role models. They are mothers, daughters, volunteers, public servants, business owners, entertainers and oftentimes unsung heroes whose individual contributions make a positive difference in our community.

In 2009, the Storm also established the Ginger Ackerley Community Service Award. The Ginger Ackerley Community Service Award will be given annually by the Seattle Storm to an individual who has had a measurable impact on improving the quality of life in Puget Sound through a significant and sustained record of volunteer service to the area’s youth.
Inspiring Women Night is an annual opportunity for Storm players and fans to thank those who have had an important influence on making our community strong. It is also a chance to shine the limelight on some who are rarely noticed for their work but have had a profound positive impact on those they have touched.
