Each spring, the Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation recognizes the hospital’s distinguished donors during special evenings in Akron and the Mahoning Valley.
The Children’s Champion and Champion for Our Valley’s Children awards honor donors who not only generously support the hospital’s mission and fundraising efforts, but also serve as champions for all children throughout the community.
“These events are an opportunity for us to shine the spotlight and say ‘thanks’ to our special donors,” said John Zoilo, executive director of Akron Children’s Hospital’s Foundation. “These are individuals, businesses and foundations who have demonstrated remarkable longevity in supporting us. We wouldn’t be here without them.”
8th annual Champions for Children’s
Fairlawn Country Club in Akron bustled with excitement and celebration on June 4 as the hospital celebrated its 8th annual Champions for Children’s donor appreciation dinner.
It was an evening filled with thanks and gratitude to our hospital donors as we bestowed the Children’s Champion award to Philip H. Maynard, Walter W. Born Foundation and the “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” radiothon presented by 98. 1 WKDD.
3rd annual Champions for Our Valley’s Children
On May 14, hospital staff and supporters gathered at The Lake Club in Poland, Ohio, to celebrate the hospital’s progress in the Mahoning Valley and honor those who made it possible, including our donors, volunteers, staff and community partners.
Special recognition was given to this year’s Champion for Our Valley’s Children, Clear Channel Youngstown and Bill Kelly, as well as our 15 Children Advocate Award winners.
