I was humbled recently when Tammy Richards, CEO of the Volunteer Center of North Texas, shared that the TJP will receive The Volunteer Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its first Big Hearts of Fort Worth Breakfast, Oct, 8, at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. In addition to the TJP, Donna Arp Weitzman will receive the award.
In addition to being overwhelmed, I was relieved to confirm that Oct. 8 is a Wednesday, so we will stay on schedule in TJPland. It is rare that we are recognized for our work, nor do we seek out the limelight. Ours is a labor of love, commitment and service to the Jewish and larger communites with a dash of carrying on the family legacy to boot.
Founded in 1971, the Volunteer Center of North Texas is one of the largest and most active volunteer centers in the country. It works to make volunteerism a part of everyday life.
We will share more with you about the Lifetime Achievement Award in a future issue. In the meantime for more information about the breakfast, please contact Kathi Wenrich, firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-818-9843.
