2021 Virtual Annual Meeting

Thank You!

Our 2021 Annual Meeting was held on Wednesday, June 16th. While the majority of our guests joined us via Zoom, a few Legacy Donors and Community Partners were able to visit with us in person as we honored our four Affiliate Funds: African American Community Fund, Hispanic Fund, Women’s Fund, and the Youth Fund.

In addition, the 2021 Jim Doughman Community Service Award was presented to Catherine Woskobnick, Vice President for Mission & Integration at Bon Secours Mercy Health, and at the heart of her work is a relentless focus on strengthening patient care, operational performance and community health outcomes. Her passion for our community is evident through her work at El Centro and Lorain County Urban League.
