What is a DoGood-er? DoGood-ers are individuals or advocates, who serve their communities and the people in it, by giving back in small to big ways. They help change lives, alter perceptions and build awareness. Some by simply lending a hand, giving of their time or initiating something new, they “Do Good” in the lives of others and the communities they live. Their work and passion in “going above and beyond”, help to strengthen the communities where we live, work and gather.
This year, the DoGood-er Awards will be honoring 13 nominees and recognizing 8 Recipients in the following categories: All Star DoGood-er, Business DoGood-er, Education DoGood-er, Military DoGood-er, Public Service DoGood-er, Unsung Hero DoGood-er, Youth DoGood-er and 2nd Chance DoGood-er.
The 2019 nominees are Stacy Allwein, Kelly Craemer, Jerry Dorsey, Kristopher Fair, Eileen Gideon, Diana Halleman, Ana Mejia, Michael Meyer, Sean Nicholson, Desiree Palmer, Heather Quill, Rachel Spencer and Ja’Montrez Williams.
The event was created by Caressa Flannery and is produced by Create-a-Pulse Marketing. Caressa states, “Studies show that doing good and giving back in your community, puts the focus on others and helps foster positive mental health, because it makes you feel good. Further, recognizing efforts of doing good, brings about positive self-esteem and an interest in continuing those efforts. We seek to recognize those in our community who selflessly give back to others individually, or through charitable organizations. Come join us for an incredible evening of inspiring stores.”
Proceeds from the DoGood-er Awards event helps to support local non-profit organizations. The two beneficiaries this year were selected from the eight charitable contribution choices of our 2018 DoGood-er winners. This year’s event will benefit COIPP, an organization that provides support, resources and services for the children of those incarcerated and PAL, a recreation-oriented juvenile crime prevention program.
