Community Awards

 

Over the years, we have witnessed some extraordinary volunteerism from some amazing people. Two of the most dedicated volunteers we have had the privilege of knowing and working with have passed on. To recognize those people, and their exceptional effort, Harry’s Foundation started awards in their honor.

 

The Mike Molitor Volunteer Award

This award is voted on by the Board of Directors and

presented to individuals who have provided “more than you

can ask for” volunteer efforts. Mike Molitor would volunteer

all four days of Harry Fest site set-up, event day, and day

after with uncanny enthusiasm. He even played his bass in

one of the bands that performed on the Harry Fest Stage!

Mike is truly missed but his legacy lives on every year at Harry Fest.

Harry Fest. She handled all aspect of money collections and accountability
