Throwback Thursday Winter Ball
For our first Throwback Thursday post, we would like to reflect on a fabulous and glamorous event that occurs annually…Winter Ball! This year marked the 65th NYJL Winter Ball and brought together volunteers, family, and friends to honor recipients of the Outstanding Sustainer and Outstanding Volunteer awards, the NYJL’s highest honors.
These awards are longstanding traditions: since 1952, five Active volunteers — and beginning in 1962, one Sustainer, and in 2004, two Sustainers — have been selected each year to receive this prestigious honor.
An Outstanding Volunteer is defined as someone who leads by example, encourages, motivates, and mentors. She is a team player, respectful of others, and a role model. An Outstanding Volunteer has a passion for the NYJL, furthers the Mission of the organization, and has gone above and beyond the call of duty in her volunteer work.
Congratulations to our award recipients 20 years ago and to those today!
