I was honored again this year as a nominee to the Governors Arts Awards (2011 &2014). It was a lovely evening and I am always impressed with the lifetimes that have been dedicated to art and culture.
One of the Individual winners that really stuck out to me was Anni Beach and her work with the art of music and inspiring youth. She stood out to me on many
levels, and the strongest is that has never become a 501 c 3 and just continues
to fund all her projects herself! I loved this as my humanitarian companies are
just the same and it is few and far between that I meet someone that will say back to me, “never do it, keep doing it yourself, never do a board.” Cheers Anni to the hard work and dedication you have shared throughout the years. I raise my glass to you.
