Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

On Wednesday July 3rd, 2013 volunteers and board members got together for an evening filled with food, laughs and awards; at Answering TTP Foundation's annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and Awards Evening. Thank you to our "hostess volunteer with the mostess" - Margie Castiglione,  for hosting such a wonderful event!

This year an exciting new tradition was started with the first presentation of the Heather Leckie Bryant  award. This award is dedicated to the Memory of Sydney Kodatsky’s (the founder of Answering TTP Foundation) mother for her determination and immense contribution to the Foundation. Every year this award will be given to volunteer who goes above and beyond the call of duty to further the goals of the Foundation.

The 1st recipient of The Heather Leckie Bryant Award is Tammy Robertson. Tammy is passionate about the Answering TTP Foundation and has volunteered at many events. From fundraisers to blood drives to stuffing envelopes. No job is too big or too small.  For the past 2 years,  Tammy has chaired the Chance for Change event. With her leadership and determination, the event has more than doubled in attendance and raised $150 000 at the last event in February 2013. Congratulations Tammy and thank you too all of our wonderful volunteers, none of what we have accomplished so far would be possible with out any of you. 

Aside from the food, fun and awards Alexis Levine, Chair & Secretary of the Board of the Answering TTP Foundation, gave a thank you address on behalf of the Foundation. Click here to watch, if you were unable to attend in person or via call in. Tammy also gave us a sneak peak at what to expect for 2014’s Chance for Change event.
