Their contributions to education, music, early development and other initiatives were recognized by APF and celebrated at an awards luncheon on Nov. 1. This award is presented to individuals or couples with a minimum of 20 years of philanthropic involvement, outstanding civic and charitable responsibility and a record of exceptional generosity that has also encouraged others to take leadership roles in philanthropic activities.
