The Beacon of Light Humanitarian Awards Gala

Each year Lighthouse honors exemplary leaders who are having an undeniable and positive impact on our community with its prestigious Beacon of Light Humanitarian 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. Proceeds from the gala support Lighthouse services.

Due to the pandemic, Lighthouse produced a television special, Empowering Potential, featuring the life-changing stories of young people and families you’ve helped through Lighthouse.  The half-hour special also pays tribute to our Beacon of Light Humanitarians Eileen Chalfie and Dr. Monica Newby as well as our President’s Award honorees: Steve Campbell, Ken Feldmann, Robert E. Rich, and Robert C. Zepf. It debuted in May 2021.

Due to the overwhelming response to the program, it’s available online. Click here to watch Empowering Potential.
