Healthy Beginnings seeks award nominations


The Breakfast of Champions Annual Awards Banquet is scheduled for 7:30 on Tuesday, October 2 at the Riverhouse Convention Center. The event is an annual fundraiser/friend-raiser for Healthy Beginnings in support of its free screening services for children in Central Oregon.

An important component of the Breakfast is to recognize local Champions for Children. In recognition of the good work that is done by so many to improve the lives of young children in our community, Healthy Beginnings is asking for your help in identifying a community member that is deserving of recognition for their work on behalf of young children.

New this year: Healthy Beginnings has added a Youth Champion for Children Award, to recognize the youth in our community who are doing great work for young children!

We invite you to nominate an individual whom you know personally or professionally as a Champion for Children. Please call Healthy Beginnings at 541-383-6357 to receive a nomination form, or email Letters of support are allowed but must be received with the nomination.

Nominations are due by September 14, 2018. The winner will be determined by the Healthy Beginnings Board. All nominees as well as this year’s Champion for Children will be honored at the Breakfast of Champions Annual Awards Banquet on October 2. All nominees and their guest are invited to attend the luncheon. Please RSVP for the luncheon by September 15 at 541-383-6357 or email your RSVP to .
