United Way of the Mark Twain Area is currently seeking nominations for individuals to honor at the 2023 Evening of Philanthropy.
The United Way Evening of Philanthropy began in 2019 with the goal to honor individuals, families and couples who invest their time, talents and treasures to make our community better.
“There are so many individuals who have done so many great things to improve our community,” said Denise Damron, executive director of the United Way.
“The Evening of Philanthropy spotlights these great individuals and their good work and we are hopeful it inspires others to do good things with their time, talents and treasures in our community.”
Currently United Way is seeking nominations for the Evening of Philanthropy honorees in four categories:
• Life-Long Philanthropist: Someone who has continuously worked to empower individuals and increase the capacity of people to care for one another
• Philanthropic Family/Couple: A family/couple that works together to empower individuals and increase the capacity of people to care for one another
• Philanthropic Individual: An individual who works to empower individuals and increase the capacity of people to care for one another
• Philanthropic Youth: An individual 18 or younger who works to empower individuals and increase the capacity of people to care for one another
Individuals must reside within Marion, Monroe, Ralls, Shelby and Lewis counties in Northeast Missouri in order to be nominated for one of these awards. The link to make nominations can be found at http://unitedwaymta.org/events-1
The deadline for nominations is Feb. 28.
The United Way’s Evening of Philanthropy will be held Friday, April 21, at The Olive Branch in Palmyra.
At the event, videos will be premiered showcasing the great work of the individuals. These videos are being produced by communication students at Hannibal LaGrange University.
