The award will be presented by Miller School Dean Pascal J. Goldschmidt during the opening reception of the organization’s annual conference which begins this Wednesday, August 18.
The reception will be from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, 1881 S.E. 17th Street Causeway, Fort Lauderdale. The price for the reception is $20. The cost for the reception and two-day conference, “A Better Path: Bold Steps to Stronger Resources,” is $95.
FANO is a 20-year-old organization serving Florida nonprofits. The award program was initiated in 1992 to bring public recognition to individuals who dedicate their lives to humanitarian work. In 1999 the name of the award was changed to the Lawton’s Heart Humanitarian Award in honor of the late Florida Governor Lawton Chiles, whose entire career exemplified dedication to community service.
