Thank you for joining
National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon
Northeast Ohio is blessed to have many residents who help to
“Change the World with a Giving Heart.”
On Friday November 14, 2014, our chapter celebrated its
25th National Philanthropy Day award luncheon with more than
430 guests who came to the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn to
recognize and celebrate local philanthropists. The honorees
included Gavin Scott Salon and Spa, the employees of Fedex
Custom Critical, the Austin-Bailey Health and Wellness
Foundation, Greg and Tiffany Michalec, the Gregory Family,
Main Street Salon, Madeline Bozzelli and Eva Dickinson. The
honorees were given a uniquely designed art piece by Streets
Each of these awardees has in their own way helped to
make a difference in our community with a variety of
methods, from the motorcycle bike runs sponsored by the Main
Street Saloon, the planning and execution of really special
events, to the grant money awarded and finally to the event
planner extraordinaire, Madeline Bozzelli. As Sandy Turner,
President of the chapter noted in introducing Madeline: We
all have the same number of minutes in our day. The Lifetime
Achievement Award is about honoring those who have used
those minutes to make an impact on our community in the
lives of those who are in need.” In accepting her award,
Madeline said: "I wish I could give you all $1000!
Accepting the award for Austin Bailey Health and Wellness
Foundation, Don Sultzbach said:” Thank you to the grantees,
many who are in this room today, who have made good use of
the dollars provided them to serve the health and wellness
need of those in our community.”
Our awardees had many memorable quotes when accepting
their awards, Eva Dickinson, a senior at Our Lady of the
Elms noted: “I learned that philanthropy helps people in
need, but it also transforms the giver.”
We are pleased to announce that $2,342.05 was raised from flower
sales and piggy bank donations. This will be given to Eva Dickinson to
donate to her charity of choice.
All of our awardees work tirelessly to make our community
a better place. They transform us with their giving hearts.
For their efforts we are most grateful.
