DOUG NELSON, resident of the Town of Perry,
was a recipient of this honorable award!

Giraffe Awards are given to individuals or organizations who have courageously advocated and worked to build a better future for Wisconsin’s children and families—notably for children and families of color and those furthest from opportunity.  In essence, they have “stuck their necks out for children, families, and community.”  The 2017 Giraffe Award recipients were presented at the annual fundraising event Step Forward for Kids.
