Since 1979, The Community Fund of Darien (TCF) has been recognizing individuals who have made a difference in and around our community at their annual Volunteer Recognition luncheon. This year, TCF will honor Darien’s extraordinary volunteers at an early evening event on April 30th from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm at the Darien Community Association so that all nominees can share their recognition with their family, friends and co-volunteers. The entire community is also invited to celebrate volunteerism and those who give tirelessly of their time and talent to benefit us all. The event will be sponsored by Brown Thayer Shedd and Halstead Properties.
TCF is reaching out to the community for nominations, especially those “unsung heroes” who may not have been previously recognized for their commitment to a cause. Nominees, who must be Darien residents, will be sought for the following categories: Outstanding Emerging Volunteer (18 years and younger), Outstanding Adult Volunteer (19 - 64 years), Outstanding Senior Volunteer (65 years and older), Outstanding Volunteer Duo, Outstanding Volunteer Family, Outstanding Volunteer Team (3 or more individuals dedicated to a cause) and Outstanding New Volunteer (1 year of service or less to one organization).
Nominations are due via online submission portal on the TCF website www.communityfunddarien.org on March 31st. They will then be reviewed by The Community Fund of Darien’s volunteer recognition panel and decisions will be made by mid-April.
We are fortunate to call Darien home to so many caring volunteers who give of their time and heart. The Community Fund of Darien is proud to recognize the impact they’ve made and to celebrate the very best of our town!
