Community Service Awards

Black and White and Red and Purple and Teal and
Orange, The Community Service awards were all the colors of a rainbow! And
twice as beautiful. Led by Gene Kennedy and rocked by Craig Chambers, the
evening was filled with appreciation, dancing and a fabulous amount of
beautiful people being acknowledged for their fantastic efforts. Established to
recognize those people and entities within Utah who advance the cause of
epilepsy awareness and understanding, the 2nd Annual Community
Service awards were held at Adobe in Lehi with 100 in attendance at the Black
and White event.
