Heart of Gold awards were developed to recognize the extraordinary everyday unsung heroes with hearts of gold and willing hands. They are the ones who consistently step up to help you when needed. Who in your world did you nominate for a HEART OF GOLD award?
People considered for this special award are neighbors, volunteers, business people, teachers, students, mentors — anyone who has contributed significantly to enhancing the quality of life of others and/or the entire community in east central Illinois, including the counties of Champaign, Coles, Douglas, Edgar, Ford, Iroquois, Moultrie, Piatt, and Vermilion.
The Community Foundation closed nominations at 5 pm, Friday, September 26.
Heart of Gold recipients will be announced at the Hearts of Gold Gala, Tuesday, November 11 and the Champaign Country Club.
