“Bert A. Polsky Humanitarian Award”




                With more than a half century of service, the Akron Community Foundation celebrated with more than 500 guests who converged at the Fairlawn-Akron Hilton.
    The main purpose of the event was to recognize Bill Considine with the Bert A. Polsky Humanitarian Award. Arriving guests greeted Bill and his wife Becky. The event was populated with corporate sponsors from Summit County. Also present were many representatives of the local medical community and the Mayor’s office.
    “Bill has been a leader in setting relationships with the area’s hospitals, research foundations, and medical service providers” said John Petures, Akron Community Foundation president and CEO.
    Eileen Berg, Honorary Chair for the award committee, and Michael Sweeney, Board Chair of the Akron Community Foundation were thrilled with the large turnout. In fact, some guests dined in a room adjacent to the main ballroom, and had the award ceremony broadcast on large TV screens.
    The $95,000 raised at the dinner will further the work of the Akron Community Foundation which gives grants to qualified nonprofit organizations. STORY BY ART THOMAS/PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROB WETZLER
