It’s another awesome week here at the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia – we have three standing nominations for the Maritime Philanthropy Awards! Handed out by the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Nova Scotia Chapter, our nominees will mix and mingle at a dinner tonight.

Our organizations couldn’t exist without the help and support of special community members. They are invaluable. Whether they are fundraising, hosting events or volunteering, we can’t thank them enough.

Our President Chris Wilson feels the same way. “The Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia receives virtually its entire budget every year from events and donations by generous Nova Scotians.  This past year we have been particularly lucky to have been the recipient of generous donations of both monies and time and effort from three very prominent and well respected Nova Scotians.”

On behalf of the Society, Mr. Wilson would like to introduce you to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia’s nominees:

Outstanding Individual Philanthropist
“Rob Steele very generously agreed to hold our Evening to Remember at his beautiful home in the Halifax area.  His generosity far surpassed anything we could have expected.  Personal sacrifices he made resulted in an evening that will be long remembered by those that were lucky enough to have attended.”

Outstanding Sponsorship Partner
“Over the past years, our Walk for Memories event has become one of our biggest fundraisers.  The society has come to rely on the event to both bring awareness to our cause and also raise much needed funds.  There is no doubt that without the sponsorship support of Shannex and the personal support of Jason Shannon, the event would not be the success that it has become.“

Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser
“As President of the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia, I would like to thank Justin McDonough for not only his past service with the Board of Governors for the Society, but also his ongoing passion and dedication to raise much needed funds through his extensive involvement as a co-chair for the Walk for Memories and also through his volunteer efforts to speak with donors in the wider community.  Without Justin it would be hard to imagine the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia achieving the successes it has over the past few years.”

Please join us in congratulating and thanking not only our organizations three nominees, but all the nominees of the Maritime Philanthropy Awards who volunteer and donate to a variety of worthy organizations, to make our communities happier, healthier and well supported.
