2021 Guardian Angel: Call for Nominations

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 2021 Guardian Angel

The Children’s Foundation serving Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties, has opened nominations for the 2021 Guardian Angel Award for Philanthropic Leadership.

This prestigious annual event to be held on Saturday, March 6, 2021. In it’s 20th year, celebrates individuals in the community who are making an exceptional difference in the lives of our children.

“As chair of the 2020 Children’s Foundation Guardian Angel Gala, I would like to thank all of our sponsors, supporters and attendees who came out on March 7th to enjoy a ‘Mystical, Magical Night’, enabling us to raise over $175,000 for our local children and families in need.  We were so fortunate to be able to celebrate Mark Phillips, our 2020 Guardian Angel, before the global pandemic changed everything.  We are optimistic that our Foundation will be able to honour another deserving member(s) of our community in 2021 and we need your help to pick someone deserving to celebrate.  At difficult times such as this, it is important to shine a light on the good that is happening in our communities and to celebrate those that continue to do that good work.  Thank you for taking a moment to nominate someone who you feel is deserving of this honour.” -Liz Lehtinen

If you know someone who deserves special recognition, you can nominate them by visiting www.thechildrensfoundation.ca or by contacting the Foundation office to request a nomination form at 613-962-9292.
