On Thursday, September 8, we will host our 2016 Community Change-Maker Awards Event, where we will gather to recognize local heroes in our community and celebrate their significant accomplishments.
We invite you to sponsor this year’s event—because your sponsorship keeps the event affordable, and it allows family and friends of award winners to attend who would otherwise be unable to afford it.
Event Details: Thursday, September 8, 5-7 PM
Union South on the UW-Madison campus
Every year we honor 24 Backyard Heroes (listed here) and three Change-Makers. This year’s Change-Makers are:
• Erica Nelson: Liesl Blockstein Community Leadership Award—nominated by Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, sponsored by UW Health and Unity Health
• Darla Lannert: Linda Sundberg Civil Rights Defender Award—nominated by OutReach, sponsored by Heartland Credit Union
• Sr. Maureen McDonnell: Sally Sunde Family Advocate Award—nominated by Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice, sponsored by Zendesk
