Central Okla. UW to honor Moore city manager

NORMAN — Moore City Manager Steve Eddy will be honored with the John Rex Community Builder Award tonight by the United Way of Central Oklahoma.

More than 750 donors and volunteers will join the United Way of Central Oklahoma at the annual Volunteer Reception and Snowflake Gala to celebrate the results of the annual fundraising campaign and to honor community volunteers.

The event will be at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.

Preceding the Snowflake Gala, the invitation-only Volunteer Awards Reception will be where United Way of Central Oklahoma Board Chairman David Thompson will present the organization’s three most prestigious volunteer awards. Honorees, including Eddy, are Martha Lippert, recipient of the Richard H. Clements Lifetime Achievement Award; Kris Rogers and James Bertsch, who each will be presented with the Ray Ackerman Leadership Award.

United Way Board Chairman David Thompson will serve as the master of ceremonies for both events. The featured entertainment will be the Edmond North Orchestra String Quartet.

The Snowflake Gala program will begin with an overview of the year by Thompson, including United Way’s role in the disaster recovery efforts of the May storms. He will set the stage for a special video to be shown in appreciation to those who donated their time and monies to the disaster relief efforts to help set impacted communities on the path to recovery.
