Distinguished Citizen Awards Dinner Honors Outstanding Community Members

Submitted by Jennifer Volz

Boy Scouts of America will be honoring local citizens at the 2019 Distinguished Citizen Awards Dinner to be held on the evening of Thursday, September 12, 2019, at The Canoe Brook Country Club at 6:30 p.m. This year’s honorees are: Thomas Baio, Principal Architect at Thomas Baio Architect PC; Timothy J. Erday, Managing Partner at Harbour Bridge Wealth Management Advisors; Heidi Evenson, Senior Director, Global IT PMO at Celgene; and Robert Rubino, Founder of The Rubino OB/GYN Group and President of the Summit Park Line. The event recognizes these four outstanding citizens for their community service, as evidenced by their leadership and interests within the community, and for their embodiment of the values of the century old Scout Oath and Law in their personal and professional lives. The event co-chairs are Al Lord, Founder & CEO, Lexerd Capital Management LLC and Gary Singleterry, Investment Director, GAM USA.

Funds raised at the Distinguished Citizen Awards Dinner will benefit the Boy Scouts of America’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs. The Boy Scouts of America has enhanced STEM content in every facet of Scouting from summer camp to the pinewood derby, by developing programs that explore the STEM principles behind familiar Scouting activities. The BSA’s STEM initiative gives Scouts an opportunity to explore relevant skills and experiences and to be recognized for their achievements. The BSA’s aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help them develop the STEM skills critical for the competitive world marketplace. Further funds will be raised at the event for Scouts in underserved areas of New Jersey to experience summer camp and enjoy the Scouting program.
