Who: Ozark Guidance
What: Director’s Circle Dinner
When and where: October 2 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Rogers
Last night, Ozark Guidance Foundation Board of Trustees thanked their donors and friends, while celebrating 42 years of service to Northwest Arkansas, at a special Director’s Circle Dinner at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Rogers. The event recognized those who have contributed more than $1,000 or more to the Ozark Guidance Foundation within the past year and the Life Members of the Director’s Circle—those who have contributed $10,000 or more in cumulative gifts. Special recognition for 2012 Lifetime Membership in the Director’s Circle was given to Art Morris of Siloam Springs, Tess Gibbs with Corazon Unique Home Furnishings and Mari Taylor with Celebrate Arkansas Magazine.
Also during the dinner, individuals and businesses that have gone “above and beyond” in their support of community mental healthcare and Ozark Guidance were given special recognition. The 2012 Outstanding Community Service Leadership Award was given to Elaine Longer and Longer Investments, Inc. of Fayetteville. Linda Wray was recognized with the 2012 Volunteer of the Year Award, and Pat Walker and the Willard and Pat Walker Charitable Foundation was awarded the Lifetime Legacy Award.
