Come celebrate with us on Thursday, December 3!
We hope that you’ll join us at O’Maine Studios (54 Danforth Street in Portland) from 5:30-7:30 PM for hors d’oeuvres, live music by The Gather Rounders, and awards!
Our December party celebrates successes and champions protecting kids and families from toxic chemicals – victories that are possible because of supporters like you. We’d be delighted to have you join us!
Together, we’ll honor the leaders who make our work possible. We’ll be presenting awards to the following recipients:
Ken Geiser will receive the Frank Hatch Environmental Health Leadership Award for his outstanding lifetime contributions to the field of environmental health regionally and nationally; a posthumous award to our dear friend Bettie Kettell (accepted by her family) who will receive the Grassroots Leadership Award and we will also be announcing a new award in Bettie’s name for outstanding contributions to environmental health in the medical profession; Ross and Christine Endicott will receive the Business Award for Endicott Home’s early leadership eliminating toxic flame retardant chemicals from its supply chain; and Drew Gattine (D-Westbrook), Karen Vachon (R-Scarborough) and Gary Hilliard (R-Belgrade) will receive awards for their Outstanding Legislative Leadership fighting for safe drinking water for all Maine families.
With your help, we’ll celebrate their hard work, dedication and passion for protecting kids and families from toxic chemicals.
This event is hosted by Prevent Harm and our partner organization, the Environmental Health Strategy Center.
