The Rotary Club of Dallas has initiated an awards program “recognizing companies that go the extra mile.” Sponsored by the 101-year-old RCD and D CEO, the Dallas Corporate Citizen of the Year Award‘s selection criteria is based on the company’s improving “the quality of life for others, philanthropic financial support, being a good neighbor and giving back to the broader community. These companies involve and encourage their employees at all levels to be active participants in their philanthropic endeavors with community organizations and make being a good corporate citizen a part of their core business philosophy.”
On April 25, RCD members and members of the award-winning companies gathered in the Venetian Room of the Fairmont to salute the awardees and their repre-sentatives:
- Judy Pesek of Gensler
- Stan Richards of The Richards Group
- Emily Parker of Thompson & Knight, LLC
- Alan White of PlainsCapital Bank
Congratulations to the recipients and to the RCD for creating an awards program to recognize companies placing importance upon philanthropy.
