honor those individuals who have made a difference in
the lives of our children and adults.

Gina Doherty will receive The Thomas W. Cullerton
Award. Gina has been so instrumental in raising funds
for the center but most important she has been our
link to the community. She has developed legislative
partnerships that have benefited not only our children
and adults but disabled persons throughout the
community. No matter what time of the day or day of
the week it is, Gina is always thinking about the
children and adults and how she can best serve them.

Dr. Mark Szymanski will receive The Special Advocate
of the Year Award for his many years of helping our
disabled children and adults experience a special
holiday season filled with laughter and excitement.
Dr. Mark plays Santa Claus and gives every child and
adult a gift that was donated at his annual Motorcycle
Run. He has been a strong supporter of our programs
throughout the years.
