Local philanthropists and volunteers were honored and at Club Lohoo in Heber on Wednesday for their contributions to the Imperial Valley.
“We wanted to recognize folks that have volunteered and given back to their community. So many of these awards are long overdue,” said Bobby Brock, president and chief executive officer of the Imperial Valley Community Foundation.
The luncheon was organized by the IVCF, a philanthropic organization itself. It was a way to say thank you and to recognize the importance of philanthropy.
