Conservationists commended at banquet - "Fundraisers honor Hardy, Will

Homegrown leaders in our midst got their time to shine Thursday as the area chapter of the Association of
Fundraising Professionals saluted the carers and sharers in our midst at the National Philanthropy Day's inspired luncheon that was chaired by Karen Petrucelli in the Hilton Hotel in Pittsburgh.
Joe Hardy, Fayette County Commissioner and owner of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa, was tapped as top philanthropist of 2004.
Said Hardy: 'It's long been my philosophy that those of us fortunate enough to have achieved success should share our success in supporting programs and organizations that help to improve communities and lives. Yet, regardless of financial status, we can all make an impact in helping others by volunteering our time and expertise.'
Anne Lewis, chairman of Pittsburgh's Children's Museum, and St. Vincent College president Jim Will were honored as outstanding volunteer fund-raisers. "
