Good News Friday!
A highlight of the event will be the recognition of Imagine!’s Consumer of the Year, Dawn Marie Candelaria-Bisgard. I wrote about Dawn in my blog last year, and she was also featured in a story in the Longmont Times-Call when her self-portrait was displayed in the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. I can’t wait to see her receive this well deserved honor.
Another reason this event is so important: during the foundation’s first ten years, donations have reached more than $4,000,000 and have allowed Imagine! to do all of the following, which would not have happened without community support.
• Enhance summer camp and after school activities
• Augment early intervention activities for children aged 0-3
• Establish a fund for assistive technology devices for the people we serve
