The Children’s Playhouse is searching for a resident of the High Country whose greatest joy comes from helping kids and families, the 2012 winner of the Great Friend to Families Award. Nominations for this award are due on April 5th.
The fourth annual Great Friend to Families award recognizes sustained contributions by individuals to the well-being of young children and their families in the High Country area. “This year we will honor up to eight winners in two categories, Helping Hands and Helping Hearts,” Playhouse board president Jen Hayward explains. “’Helping Hands’ awards will celebrate professionals who over the course of their careers have shown extraordinary dedication to improving the lives of children and families, while ‘Helping Hearts’ awards will recognize individuals who have touched the lives of children and families through generous philanthropy and/or outstanding volunteerism.”
The award winners in each category will be honored at a luncheon on Saturday, April 21st and one overall winner will be presented with a piece of local art and $500 to donate to the High Country nonprofit of their choice.
