Third Annual Golden Badge Awards Big Success!
The Golden Badge Awards was held at the Riverside Convention Center on September 6, 2014, and recognized community members for their commitment to youth. Rob McMillan, ABC7 Inland Empire Bureau Chief, was the Master of Ceremonies and Chris Manning acted as the auctioneer for this very successful event.
Foundation board members highlighted the Foundation’s activities within the community and presented the awards. Mr. Joe Tavaglione received the “Ronald O. Loveridge Distinguished Leader Award”, Mrs. Marie Fritts was honored with the “Chief’s Award”, and Drew Mendonca was presented with the “Future Leader Award” and a $1000 scholarship. Diana Yeung and Anthony Carrillo were also honored with the “Future Leader Special Recognition Awards” and received $500 scholarships.
