The Big Day Is Here

We've all been anticipating the award ceremony tonight, announcing NAMI volunteer Dick Jevon as a Jefferson Award winner.

Tonight, we're looking forward to an elegant cocktail party at the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer, followed by the award ceremony inside the Music Hall.

Dick is very proud to receive this honor, but he's down-to-earth as ever. He may have worn his necktie today, but he still ate his Wendy's takeout for lunch!

During lunch, Dick received a huge bouquet of flowers from Allegheny HealthChoices, congratulating him for his achievement. The entire office smells fragrant.

Darcey Garda, Manager of Development and Marketing, and Debbie Ference, Associate Director, are the last two at the office, trying to wrap up their work. Here they are, ready for a big night, watching their co-worker and friend receive this very special award and $1,000 for NAMI.
