With the health and wellbeing of our guests, honorees and staff in mind, we are unable to host the Spirit Award Dinner in April. Our team is working to reformat the event so that we can provide a safe and more intimate experience later this year. We will be reaching out to all of our sponsors in the coming weeks to discuss these modifications. We are grateful for Russell and Beth’s service to the Center and look forward to celebrating with you all soon.

The Helen Ross McNabb Foundation is honored to recognize Beth Haynes and Russell Biven at the Spirit Award Dinner. This event began in 2004 to recognize individuals who have supported the efforts of the McNabb Center and have worked selflessly to improve their community.
