London nonprofit network holds awards dinner

November 7, 2018 by  

The Pillar Nonprofit Network, a group of charitable organizations in the London, Ontario area, will honour those who have contributed to the community later this month with their annual Pillar Community Innovation Awards.

London residents have been encouraged to learn about the 12 nominated organizations and individuals, then cast their vote for the one they feel is most deserving in each of the four categories. With voting now closed, all that remains for the nominees is the wait.

The awards event will be held on the evening of November 22 at the London Convention Center. It will be a formal event with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. In addition to the awards presentation, the ceremony presents an opportunity for those in the local NGO and charity sector to network, exchange business cards and get to know the people behind the letterheads.

Nominees for the awards include individuals like Mustfah Madlol and Marie Fielder, as well as programs and organizations such as The Grand Theatre’s 100 Schools Project, Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario, the Lawrence Kinlin School of Business, and My Sister’s Place. The Pillar Network’s goal is to increase awareness of nonprofits and make their work easier by matching up prospective employees with relevant organizations. In doing so, they say they hope to empower individuals and build strong communities.
