“The Heart of Marin awards are such an energizing event, and a great reminder of how much our county community values volunteering and service. Being a parent of a child on the receiving end was so exciting. I am so proud of him and all of the Youth nominees.” - Leslie Winokur, parent of Hart Fogel, one of our 2013 Youth Volunteer of the Year recipients
