2017 Leadership Dinner

This event has ended.

Thank you to our honorees, sponsors, attendees, committee members, Board of Directors, supporters and everyone else that helped make our 2017 Leadership Dinner a wonderful night and great success!

On April 20th we celebrated 25 years of Bridges to Community volunteerism by honoring three individuals, Bart & Diana Tyler and Carol Piccaro.  These honorees embody the core values that are central to the American character: that we build a better community and a better world when each of us does our part.

Bart and Diana Tyler are long-time Bridges supporters and two of our founders.  They helped organize the first Bridges trip and have led more than 30 trips.  Bart and Diana served on the Bridges Board over the course of 1993 to 2016 and Bart served as Board Chair from 2009 to 2012. Bart and Diana have inspired hundreds of people to volunteer and engage in Bridges’ life changing experience. For all they have done, and continue to do, Bridges to Community will honor them with the Outstanding Vision and Commitment to Action Award.

Carol Piccaro is President of U.S. Chemicals, A Woman Owned Business.  Carol has committed her company to the principles of corporate social responsibility in their business practices and philanthropy.  She is dedicated to ensuring everyone has access to clean water, health care, education and a quality environment supporting organizations such as Charity Water, Americares, Bridges to Community, and as a Trustee of Saint Michael’s College.  Bridges to Community will honor Carol with our inaugural Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility Award.
