The nominees and recipients of the annual award must possess certain characteristics.  “We look for community giving, a philanthropic spirit, kindness, generosity, character, and leadership,” said LaCasse,” We thought these are the qualities our award winners would have.  Because of this, we’ve had a great list of winners.”

LaCasse says this is certainly true of their 2012 recipient Dianne Simon.  “She has been a great face of the pink flamingo award,” said LaCasse,” We see her all the time at different club events in the community.”

The public ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Thompson Hills Investment Group offices.
