Join Us For The 2022 Hearts of Gold Awards

Celebrating Those Who Make A Difference, Every Minute of Every Day.

Since the founding of the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation in 2005, we have encountered countless community members who selflessly give their talents and time to assist individuals with special needs. This year, we’ve combined our Excellence in Caregiving Award ceremony and our Wall of Fame ceremony to create the Hearts of Gold Awards. On this night, we will recognize and honor these compassionate, dedicated individuals and their shining hearts of gold.

Nominate a Candidate

Do you know a compassionate individual who goes above and beyond to help our friends with special needs – either through direct caregiving or through community innovation/involvement?  If so, you can nominate that unsung hero to be honored with either an Excellence in Caregiving Award or a Wall of Fame Award during the 2022 Hearts of Gold Awards ceremony scheduled for Saturday, November 5, 2022 at Morgan’s Wonderland.
