Honoring Those Who Give from the Heart
Each spring, hundreds of people in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin come together to celebrate volunteerism and honor those who go above and beyond to help make the community a better place with their gifts of time.
Volunteer awards in seven categories will be presented during the 21st Celebrating Volunteers community gala April 26, 2018, in downtown Appleton.
Thanks to the generosity of award sponsors, each award recipient receives $5,000 for their favorite Fox Valley charity (youth recipient receives $1,000 for charity plus a $1,500 scholarship). Since 1998, award sponsors have given $660,000 to local charities selected by their award recipients!
