Jim Bishop Award
This award is named after one of our members who helped ABATE by going above and beyond the normal volunteer work. Jim graciously donated funding to keep ABATE in business after a poor fundraising effort. Any member that is not currently or previously a Board member is eligible for nomination of this award. Candidates must show contributions above and beyond normal service that benefits only ABATE and not the individual. Contributions can be monetary or personal.
Volunteer of the Year Award
Any member (including past or present Board members) may be nominated for this award. This award is to reward the member that has taken that extra step in ABATE’s mission. The nominees must be someone that has spent many hours contributing to further ABATE goals in personal service, not monetary.
