(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) – Nominations are due by July 31, 2013 – Now is the time to nominate unsung heroes in your community for the 24th Annual Black Culture Foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year, Community Service and Black Rose Awards, which take place Friday Sept. 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the National Orange Show Renaissance Room, 689 South E Street.
“It’s important that when you nominate someone who you believe has made a difference in your community, that you talk to them,” said Margaret Hill, outgoing program chair of the Black Rose Awards and a member of the Black Culture Foundation.
“When you talk to the person you may find out that they have done a lot more than you realize. We recommend that when you nominate someone you are very detailed in your write-up,” says Hill
To nominate someone for this award, go to www.sbbcfoundation.org
to download a nomination form, or email the incoming chair Troy Ingram. Nominations are due by July 31, 2013.
A committee consisting of five members who includes two (2) San Bernardino Black Culture Foundation, Inc., members and three community citizens who are not members of the San Bernardino Black Culture Foundation, Inc. does the selection.
Hill says the awards program focuses on all volunteers, organizations, and individuals no matter their ethnicity or residency. The Black Rose Awards is a diverse program that honors all unsung heroes.
The Foundation is now selling tickets to the award ceremony at the price of $60 per person, until Aug. 17. Tickets purchased after that date will be $75.
