National Philanthropy Day grows up

National Philanthropy Day grows up: "So, when the desert's first National Philanthropy Day event was announced nine years ago, it didn't create much of a stir.  It was presented by a newly formed local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Desert Chapter, and the first Outstanding Philanthropist of the Year honor went to Jim and Jackie Lee Houston in 2007.  The crowd was relatively small and the program was, uh, not as well organized as this community expects."

Judging from recurring comments Tuesday evening, the Paris terrorist attacks were still on many people’s minds, and an appreciation of how lucky we are to live in a country that embraces compassion.
