Our Annual Tradition of Compassion Philanthropy Awards ceremony honors local businesses, organizations and individuals who exhibit what it means to be a philanthropist through their volunteerism and charitable donations in the community. On March 9th the 2017 award recipients were announced. Each award recipient was asked to select a local nonprofit to receive a donation from the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation in their honor. Here are the results:
- Outstanding Philanthropist – Dr. Wallace Wolf, donation allocated to The Dalles Backpack Program
- Outstanding Volunteer – Les Cochenour, donation allocated to Mid-Columbia Veteran’s Memorial Committee
- Outstanding Community Service Organization – Pig Bowl, donation allocated to Distinguished Young Women of Wasco County
