Fifth Annual AWB Hero Award
Honoring Thomas Wlodkowski
Over 240 people celebrated honoree Tom Wlodkowski as well as 16 years of programming at Acting Without Boundaries. IT WAS THE VIRTUAL EVENT OF THE YEAR! Guests enjoyed unique performances by AWB Seniors and Junior actors, celebratory toasts, highlights of Tom’s amazing work and most importantly, community building. We are thrilled to report that the event including live/silent auction, and live appeal helped raise over $65,000 for AWB’s general programming!
The AWB Hero Award is given to a community leader with a physical disability who displays remarkable efforts to overcome adversity, enhance awareness, reduce stigma and increase community access for disabled individuals. Pictured right is the 2020 Hero Award Recipient Tom Wlodkowski with his award.
