It was a fun evening yesterday participating in the virtual awards ceremony for the Boys and Girls Club of Ridgefield. I was honored to be recognized with the Champion of Youth award for my longtime support of the club, which provides such a key service in our community.
The big story of the evening, however, was our Youth Of The Year award, which went to Ridgefield High School senior, Annie Cozens. Annie says her favorite thing about the club is getting to be a positive role model for the younger Club members. Annie also wants to go on to a career in neuroscience. She exemplifies the award by adhering to academic excellence, leading a healthy lifestyle, and embracing the values of leadership and service.
Personally, and through my business, I enjoy supporting a plethora of local nonprofits in Ridgefield. For the Boys and Girls Club of Ridgefield I serve as a member of the Board of Directors and as a Gala committee member, as well as sponsoring the annual Turkey Trot. It is such a privilege to be able to give back to such an important and worthy organization.
