iHeartMedia Phoenix's 99.9 KEZ, The Valley's Best Variety, announced today that Jessica Nicely has been named the 2019 Beth McDonald Woman of the Year. Since 2003, 99.9 KEZ has been honoring women who have made a difference - from CEO's to soccer moms with The Beth McDonald Woman of the Year Award. Nicely was honored at a banquet presented by Shea Homes and 99.9 KEZ at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch on January 30th.

Nicely is the founder of a nonprofit organization called Winged Hope, which assists children and adults suffering from domestic violence, sexual abuse and suicide. In addition, she has written several influential books including "All My Friends Are Zeros." Her work with Winged Hope is voluntary and she receives no compensation.

Each month, one nominee out of 12 finalists receives a complimentary weekend at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch in Scottdale Arizona and is qualified to win the Beth McDonald Woman of the Year Award. The winner was selected by Beth McDonald and will receive $7,500 cash and a trophy from Tiffany & Co.

"Jessica is truly the epitome of someone who has taken adversity and turned it into her passion to help others on a day-to-day basis with no judgment, only love," said Joyce McLaren, who nominated Nicely.

"I am so happy to be part of the Beth McDonald Women of the Year program now in its seventeenth year. Every year we honor incredible women who are so deserving. Once again, we have an amazing group, we are here to reward these women with the recognition they deserve. Like all of these women, Jessica Nicely, our overall winner, gives of herself without asking anything of others and that is what this program is all about." said Beth McDonald, 99.9 KEZ On Air Host.

"We are so delighted to highlight these 12 incredible women, this program truly honors those in our community who deserve recognition." said Paul Kelley, Program Director for 99.9 KEZ.
