Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo magazine is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Threads of Hope Awards. For the past 17 years, Diablo has invited readers to nominate exceptional volunteers working for charitable causes in the East Bay. Nomination forms can be found at diablomag.com/threads and will be accepted until July 2, 2012.
The Threads of Hope Awards ceremony, held in December, recognizes outstanding individuals who selflessly give their time to help others, and in doing so, strengthen the fabric of our community. Diablo magazine expects more than 300 community and business leaders to attend.
After careful consideration of each nominee’s dedication of service, hands-on involvement, and overall impact on the community, a panel of judges representing East Bay businesses and philanthropic organizations chooses these honorees.
This year’s judging panel will consist of Jessica Aguirre, NBC Bay Area’s weeknight news co-anchor and host of Class Action, a weekly show about education; Mark Flowers, senior vice president and regional director of Wells Fargo The Private Bank; Stephen Lesher, vice president of the Dean and Margaret Lesher Foundation, and manager of sustainable development at Shell Oil Company; Karla McCormick, program director of the Volunteer Center of the East Bay; and Carole Wynstra, board president of Diablo Theatre Company.
