LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Leadership Westchester has named Kate Bialo, of Larchmont, the 2015 LW Alumna of Year.

Bialo, LW Class of '07, was honored for her outstanding leadership and professional achievement. A corporate attorney by training, Bialo has received numerous awards in recognition of her work (including being named one of 10 Woman of Worth by L’Oreal Paris in 2012) with Furniture Sharehouse, the prominent nonprofit Furniture Bank of Westchester. She has been a resident of Westchester County for over 20 years.

Since conceiving of the idea of a “shared warehouse” in 2005, Bialo has helped provide over 47,000 items of free furniture to more than 8,700 individuals of need, enabling them to fill their empty apartments and begin rebuilding their lives (and keeping 280 tons from Westchester's waste stream).

As a member of Leadership Westchester’s Class of 2007, the year in which Furniture Sharehouse was launched, Bialo credits the training and focus she was given in Leadership Westchester with helping her rally the resources needed to make Furniture Sharehouse a reality.

Leadership Westchester held its 2015 graduation Tuesday at The Gateway Center of Westchester Community College in Valhalla. The class had 20 new graduates. Every graduating class represents a new wave of executive leadership in Westchester that is better prepared to effect positive change through their organization and within their community.
