Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) September 7, 2006
Entertainer and Children’s Miracle Network founder Marie Osmond will receive ANASAZI Foundation’s “Turn for Peace” award at the nonprofit organization’s annual scholarship dinner, which celebrates the achievements of young people who have overcome significant emotional and behavioral challenges. The event is scheduled for Thursday, November 9, at the new Arizona Cardinals Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The evening’s honorees will include ANASAZI graduates—those nominated as “Young Leaders”—who will receive college scholarships from NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young. Event hosts are philanthropists Diana and Robert Hunt, whose Hunt Construction Group built the revolutionary facility and its one-of-a-kind retractable field.
ANASAZI’s Turn for Peace award is presented to individuals who have made a lasting impact on the lives of children and families. Past recipients include Young, former First Lady Barbara Bush, country music star Wynonna Judd, authors Stephen R. Covey and Richard Paul Evans, philanthropists Robert and Lynette Gay, professional sports owner/executive David Checketts, and Family Circus creator Bil Keane.
Since co-founding the Children’s Miracle Network in 1983, Ms. Osmond has helped raise more than $2.8 billion for children's hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. She will receive the 2006 Turn for Peace with her husband, music producer Brian Blosil.
Proceeds from the event will enable financially challenged families to obtain the help they need for a struggling son or daughter. For reservations and table or event sponsorships, call (800) 678-3445.
