Above & Beyond Award
The Above & Beyond Award is a $1,000 monetary award given to a deserving Team Member, at the Anderson Gala. Candidates will be nominated by Anderson parents, who will be provided with a template asking them for their contact information and a short narrative describing how the Team Member they are nominating has gone "above & beyond" in the care of their child. This is meant to honor an individual who goes beyond the expectation of optimizing the quality of life for the people we serve, thus making the nomination reviews very important. The winner should be a person who, either in a specific situation or on an on-going basis, takes action that give you that emotional impact - the "they didn't have to do that, but they did" feeling.
The winner of this award will be invited, along with a guest, to the Anderson Gala to receive the award in person.
The parent/parents who has nominated the winner will also be invited to attend and present the award to the Team Member.
This award has been possible by a generous donor who seeks ways to highlight the incredible work of all Anderson Team Members, especially those who go "above & beyond".
