Leadership Award To Celebrate 10 Years

Leadership Palm Beach County’s 10th annual Leadership Excellence Awards will take place Friday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion to celebrate a leadership program graduate who has made significant contributions to improve the community.

The event will honor finalists who are nominated by group alumni and current class members, and announce this year’s recipient. Honorary chairs are Don Chester, Gale Howden and David Baker, the first three recipients of the honor. Co-chairs of the event are Dorothy Bradshaw and Patrick McNamara.

“Leadership Palm Beach County provides access to the county’s most diverse industries and a unique opportunity for civic engagement,” said McNamara, winner of last year’s award. “My deep involvement with the program has helped to shape the network in which I am now connected. This event will provide needed funding to support the programs which allow access to Palm Beach County’s courtrooms, newsrooms, schools, farms and the businesses that drive our economy.”

Finalists are selected based on the vision and mission of Leadership Palm Beach County. They reflect the qualities of integrity, compassion, credibility, passion, risk-taking, fairness, empowerment and humility.

Tickets to the Leadership Excellence Awards are $125. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more info., call (561) 833-4321 or visit www.leadershippbc.org/lea.
