Benefitting the NORD Foundation and NORD, this informal, energetic celebration highlighted NORD’s phenomenal progress since the establishment of the public-private partnership in 2010, its first-class facilities and growing array of programs.
The program recognized individuals and business leaders who have made significant investments to improve NORD and those from NORD who have made significant contributions in their areas of professional expertise and community endeavors. NORD presented samplings of its wide range of athletic, youth, teens, seniors, swimming, outdoors and cultural programs on the field and in the Glazer Family Club throughout the evening. Scroll down to see the list of honorees.
Proceeds from the gala underwrote free summer camps for over 1,000 youth from low-income families, who enjoyed a safe, educational and FUN summer of 2017.
