On Nov. 13th the Association of Fund Raising Professionals, Northwest Ohio Chapter celebrated National Philanthropy Day with a special luncheon attended by over 500 local philanthropist, fundraising professionals and non-profit organizations. At this event one of our own Little Sisters Advisory Board members, Mrs. Donna Beluska, was recognized as an “Outstanding Community Volunteer” for the Little Sisters of the Poor. Donna has been a close friend and volunteer of her many talents to the Sacred Heart Home over many years. Donna’s company, BGI, Inc., has designed the Little Sisters marketing and communication pieces for gratis over the years and offered her expert advice on our Advisory Board for the past 6 years.
Mother Alice was pleased to present Donna with a certificate at this event to honor her many years of volunteerism to our Mission. Donna, along with 24 other community volunteers, was recognized at the luncheon. Many thanks to Donna for all that she has done for us over the years. We greatly appreciate her support.
