Over 130 nonprofit leaders, volunteers, elected officials, and business members logged into the Virtual Heart of Napa Awards hosted by Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) on July 23, 2020.
“Every year we look forward to producing this event of appreciation and gratitude,” said Linda Jacobs, CEO of CVNL. “Despite having to postpone our in-person event in March, we knew it was important to create a space where volunteers, nonprofits, and community partners could come together to acknowledge the positives strides we’ve made as a sector. We have some incredible leaders in our community, and it’s an honor to be able to publicly celebrate these unsung heroes.”
The nomination process for this year’s event closed with 55 submissions in six award categories. After an intensive selection process, CVNL awarded $22,500 to the 2019 award winners and personally mailed certificates of recognition and engraved glass sculptures to each recipient.
