Each year, National Philanthropy Day recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations in our community that are making a difference in the lives of others. By ‘changing the world with a giving heart’, these local philanthropists have been named as the top finalists in seven award categories for this year’s National Philanthropy Day awards. Winners will be announced during the ceremony taking place on Wednesday, November 13th at the McPherson Playhouse, with keynote speaker Paul Brandt, Canadian country singing legend and philanthropist. The Generosity of Spirit Award and the Generosity of Spirit Legacy Award honourees have already been selected.
Hold on to your hats Victoria (preferably the cowboy kind) because we have an exciting announcement! In celebration of 20 years recognizing Victoria’s philanthropic community, Canadian country singing legend Paul Brandt will be the keynote address at this year’s event, taking place at the McPherson Playhouse on November 13, 2019.
Philanthropists of all ages were honoured at the National Philanthropy Day award celebrations held at the Victoria Conference Centre Friday.
