Past Touching Lives Award winners include former Wisconsin First Lady Sue Ann Thompson, Chief Executive Officers Leo Brideau and Bill Petasnick, physicians, and hospice and palliative care nurses.

*Length of Service providing service to our community for at least 20 years

*Depth of Commitment going beyond what is expected with tenacity

*Innovation in creating their own organization or project, or advance an existing one

Recipients will receive their awards at Horizon’s annual Matters of the Heart Gala February 19, 2011. The awards are hand-blown glass works of art created by local artist Daniel Ostrov. Horizon established the awards in 2007, the first year they held their Gala which raises funds for the agency’s Grief Resource Center, Wisconsin’s only free walk-in center dedicated to grief, bereavement and healing. This is the first time Horizon has opened the award nomination process to the public.
