About the Give Back Awards
Rubber chicken dinner in a dark hotel ballroom? Not at the Give Back Awards! Now in its 3rd year, the Give Back Awards is an evening of service in honor of progressive business leaders who are committed to social responsibility and sustainable economic growth. We’ll gather in the Giving Factory at Cradles to Crayons and for a brief reception and program, followed by working together to assemble items for children in need. Questions about what to wear or where to park? Check out our FAQ page here.
A Partnership with Cradles to Crayons
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need. The Give Back Awards is held at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory, and supports their important work with an evening of service, and a donation of $50 per event attendee.
