The Friendship Centers is pleased to announce the inaugural “People Helping People” awards breakfast on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 8:30 am at Michael’s on East in Sarasota.
This special event will honor champions in our community who are doing so much to benefit older adults. The honorees exemplify “People Helping People,” the principle on which Brother William Geenen founded the Friendship Centers more than 40 years ago.
"There are so many wonderful people in this community who are doing good for older adults," said Senior Vice President Erin McLeod. "We felt the time was right to recognize and honor them for the heroes they are. Each of this year's recipients has made a significant contribution to the Friendship Centers over the years in support of our mission."
The four award categories and recipients are:
- Senior Advocacy Award:
Retiring President/CEO, Friendship Centers
- Hidden Gem Award:
Event planner/volunteer fundraiser
- Life Changer Award:
Dr. Donald Snyder, physician, Center for Healthy Aging
- Caring Company Award:
Herald‐Tribune Media Group
Prime Times publisher since 1988
The chair of the event is Michael Juceam, owner of Right at Home Sarasota County, whose corporate office is also an in-kind sponsor. Committee members are Amanda Cattaneo, Nancy Claridge, Patti Coleman, Debbie Frank and Dr. Gloria Schranz.
