The deadline for nominating Champions of Service from your communities has been extended to Friday, September 20.
The Champions of Service honorees will be honored at a gala October 24 in Baton Rouge as Volunteer Louisiana celebrates 20 years of promoting an ethic of service throughout the state. We’re honoring former NFL running back Warrick Dunn for his work with the Warrick Dunn Charities and Betty’s Hope at a Champions of Service gala Thursday, October 24 in Baton Rouge.
In addition to Mr. Dunn, we will be recognizing five regional Champions of Service but we need your help identifying the most outstanding role models from each region of the state. Please consider nominating your outstanding volunteer today.
For information or questions about the nominations process or the gala, contact Janet Pace at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing about your local heroes!
We hope you will plan to attend our celebration. Great food, great music and inspirational stories. We are honored to recognize our Major Sponsor, La Capitol Federal Credit Union.
