Watch the Surprise Announcement at our 2014 Award Ceremony

By Christina Roperti - March 18, 2014

When we brought our 2014 Lady GODIVA Honorees together in New York City for our annual award ceremony, we knew something they didn’t: We weren’t choosing just one of them as an honoree -- we decided to present each of them with a $10,000 grant!

Over hot chocolate and other treats at the Rent the Runway Showroom at iconic Henri Bendel in Manhattan, Molly, Stephanie, and Erin anxiously awaited the announcement of who would be the grant recipient. The celebration got a whole lot sweeter when GODIVA President Jeri Finard made our surprise announcement that all three women were honorees, and thus awarded the $10,000 each!

Watch below to see what happened when these incredible women got a life-changing piece of news. There were a lot of smiles and a few tears -- see if you can make it through without getting a little misty yourself:
