Angel among us

Gary Edwards, right, receives the Boys & Girls Club of Sonoma Valley’s annual “Angel Award” from Club Executive Director David Pier. The honor recognizes Edwards’ exemplary support and selfless giving of his time and finances, his commitment to collaborative opportunities, and his tireless energy in bringing new and entrepreneurial program ideas.

“Gary cares deeply about the Club and the kids we serve, and we were honored to recognize his exceptional dedication,” said Pier, presenting the award the Club’s Fashion in the Vineyards fundraiser.

The event was a great success, according to event chair Dana Freudenberger. “We exceeded not only our financial goals but also brought together community merchants and designers to put on a terrific show. Thank you to our event sponsors, patrons, volunteers, designers, retailers, photographers and models. Their contributions will definitely jump start our new Career Launch program and enhance our teen services. We are paving the way for the future.”
