2019 Leo Benavides Award — More Information & Sponsorships
The Leo C. Benavides Award is given annually to one high school student from each high school in Tarrant County in recognition of outstanding volunteerism and servant leadership both at school and out in the community. The students awarded this honor are the students boldly standing on the front lines to fight back on bullying, poverty, discrimination, drugs, and so many other negative forces with compassion, generosity, respect, ingenuity and simple kindness. They are unsung heroes – until this awards changes that by celebrating, thanking and encouraging their service.
Each student nominee, two of his/her parents or family members and the nominator will be mailed invitations in mid-March to a complimentary celebration dinner that will be held at the Fort Worth Club on Tuesday, April 16th. Questions? Email Tiara at email@example.com.
Generous donations from local business and community members make it possible to gift our student nominees, their parents and their teachers with a special evening that celebrates and encourages the students’ selfless service. For $500, you can sponsor your neighborhood high school’s attendance at this esteemed event. Sponsorship is also available in a variety of other levels. To donate, complete the Leo C. Benavides Sponsorship Form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
