14th Annual Spirit Awards

Dear Friends

Eric Harrison, President & CEO
United Way of Ventura County

On Sept.13, we’ll be celebrating our 14th Annual Spirit Awards at the Serra Padre Center in Camarillo. This will be a special evening recognizing the community and foundation leaders who partnered with us throughout the year and when Ventura County needed us most.

Our honorees include the Annenberg Foundation, which will receive our President’s Award for helping to establish the United Way Thomas Fire & Flood Fund with their lead gift; Bob Brunner, our longtime board member and Community Impact Chair, will be given the Milton M. Teague Award for outstanding volunteerism; Maggie Tougas will be recognized with the Douglas Shively Award for her service as a key member of our recovery group and for representing our local Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster; and Bank of America will be recognized for their top corporate citizenship with the Roy Pinkerton Award for their increased support and for helping us provide emergency debit cards to those affected by the Thomas Fire. Last, but certainly not least, William ‘Bill’ Kearney, who many of you know as one of our region’s most recognized and outstanding philanthropists and volunteers will receive our Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Richard Rush, Past President of California State University Channel Islands, will be presenting Bill with the award.

Limited tickets are available. If you’ve attended our Spirit Awards Gala in the past few years, you know the evening is known for its live entertainment. We are proud to welcome Spencer Day, the unique #1 Billboard-charting pop/jazz performer. Spencer has performed everywhere from Lincoln Center to the Hollywood Bowl and will put on a show you don’t want to miss. The 14th Annual Spirit Awards Gala is certain to be an inspirational and unforgettable evening. Come join us!
