Herb and Sherry Clark receive Philanthropy Award from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County!
The Community Foundation of Middlesex County (CFMC) is pleased to announce the recipients of its first Philanthropy Award are Herb and Sherry Clark of Essex. The Clarks are being recognized for their longstanding spirit of giving, their extraordinary commitment to helping others throughout Middlesex County, and their leadership in promoting philanthropy each and every day.
The Philanthropy Award was presented to Herb and Sherry during the Community Foundation's 15th Anniversary Celebration on November 16, 2012. Joining more than 300 guests amidst a standing ovation, Cynthia Clegg, CFMC President and CEO, remarked, the Clarks seem to have a sixth sense about who needs help and what issues in the community need to be addressed. The Clarks are quiet in their work, het deliberate in taking action to help others and encourage all of us to do more, be more, give more.
Herb and Sherry Clark are the embodiment of Philanthropy through their actions and examples. They, indeed, live by the rule Philanthropy Matters. Philanthropy Works.
In further recognition of their lifelong commitment to the Middlesex County community and the Community Foundation, the award hereafter will be know as the Herb and Sherry Clark Philanthropy Award at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.
