“We are proud to present and pay tribute to these outstanding individuals who have exhibited such incredible civic and charitable stewardship,” said Diana Marquis, Dallas National Philanthropy Day Chair.  “In celebration of the 50th anniversary of AFP, we provided at each attendee’s place a set of trivia cards with questions revolving around the last 50 years of philanthropy and current events in Dallas.  The cards will also be used when presenting career workshops about philanthropy in high schools and colleges.”

2010 Award recipients:

The Hallam Family (Outstanding Philanthropist): the personal contributions from the Hallam family and their company, Ben E. Keith, reach beyond generous monetary and product contributions.  Their multi-generational involvement in the community has been evident, from the late Edith and Gaston Hallam, to their sons, Robert, Howard, John and six grandchildren.

The Sammons Dallas Foundation (Outstanding Foundation), sponsored by Baylor Health Care System: The late Charles A. Sammons, a visionary with a generous heart, established a high standard of personal and corporate responsibility to the City of Dallas.  He created the Sammons Dallas Foundation as the vehicle by which he and Sammons Enterprises, Inc. would provide long-term support to six designated beneficiaries: Baylor Health Care System Foundation, Methodist Health System Foundation, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Communities Foundation of Texas, The Salvation Army in Dallas County and the educational trust fund of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas. In 2009 the foundation provided a $100 million gift to the six beneficiaries.

The Greater Dallas Chapter of AFP was among the first to begin celebrating National Philanthropy Day in 1981.  Today, over 700 attend the luncheon which includes AFP members and community leaders.   National Philanthropy Day celebrates the great contributions philanthropy, and those who work in the philanthropic process, make to our community.  AFP Chapters involve more than 28,000 individuals in celebrating philanthropy each year.
