Chairperson’s Award: Graeme Duff and Graeme Reid
Awarded annually, the Chairperson’s Award acknowledges the efforts of a group or individual who has assisted the Foundation in its Mission to support our local community.
We’re pleased to announce that the joint recipient of the 2018 Chairperson’s Award is Graeme Duff and Graeme Reid.
These two gentlemen are the brains and the work behind the extremely successful Auction @ the Mill which has taken place over the past three years raising more than $100,000 over that time to support the Foundation’s work.
