Each year Lighthouse honors humanitarians with its prestigious Beacon of Light Award. Honorees are recognized for leadership and service, community impact, and involvement with children, youth and families. We celebrate the accomplishments of our community’s outstanding individuals at a gala each spring.
The 2017 Beacon of Light Humanitarian is Bob Mecum, retired president and chief executive officer of Lighthouse. The theme is “Once Upon a Time: A Story of Lighthouse.”
Proceeds from the gala support Lighthouse services and the effort to end youth homelessness.
