Carlsbad resident Marilyn Stark, pictured with Carl Etter, chief executive and senior vice president, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, was awarded the 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award at a special Circle of Life 100 luncheon on June 24, 2010. As founder and first chair of Circle of Life 100, Marilyn has played a significant role in developing the service organization into a leading advocate for health education and philanthropy in support of Scripps Encinitas. Each year, members of Circle of Life 100 host an annual fundraising event to benefit women’s health services at the nonprofit hospital. This year’s Sixth Annual Circle of Life 100 Celebration: Wine, Women & Shoes, will be held on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010, and will help fund women’s diagnostic imaging at Scripps Encinitas, which is vital to detecting breast cancer at its earliest stages.
