The Golden Hero Award is an award bestowed on an individual on a milestone anniversary, and remains the premier award given to any supporter. A Golden Hero is an individual who acts as Helper, Healer, Advocate, Visionary, Ambassador and Champion for TBCF’s mission and the families we serve, as well as others in the community. They encompass all of the qualities of the Heart of Gold, Humanitarian and Helping Hands awards, and have made transformational changes for the betterment of TBCF’s families and community.  Donna is the embodiment of this award and we are thrilled to honor her at our gala.
