Congratulations 2016 National Philanthropy Day Honourees
Every year at the AFP Golden Horseshoe National Philanthropy Day event, we are reminded of the passionate people in our community who make philanthropy possible.
With an overwhelming number of excellent nominations this year, choosing this year's award recipients was no easy feat so we congratulate this year’s honourees: Longo’s as Outstanding Corporation, The Esch Foundation as Outstanding Foundation; Ron Joyce and Dr. Ron Schlegel sharing the honours of Outstanding Philanthropist; Bonnie & Terry Jackson recognized as Outstanding Volunteer Fundraisers; and last but certainly not least, to the future of philanthropy, Jessica Wilson, this year's Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy.
We were honoured to have the opportunity to recognize these outstanding individuals and organizations this year, as we celebrated with AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter members and the philanthropic community.
Watch as Ron Joyce shares his thoughts about the importance of philanthropy.
