Congratulations Leona!

Congratulations are in order for Leona Stoecker, a great friend of Imagine!, for being awarded the Stan Black Award by the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County. The Stan Black Award is named for one of the founders of The Community Foundation. Stan is retired now, but continues to be an active participant in a number of causes, both in the Boulder area and overseas. The Community Foundation presents this award annually with the sponsorship of the law firm of Hutchinson, Black & Cook and the additional support individual donors. The award is intended to honor an individual who, like Stan Black, has given a lifetime of "time, treasure and talent" to the community.

That is certainly true of Leona, who is one of Imagine!’s greatest ambassadors. The award included a check for $1,000 for the organization of Leona’s choice, and we’re honored she chose Imagine! as the recipient. Leona, you are indeed a treasure for Imagine! and our community!

Here are some pictures from the awards ceremony.
