13th Annual Glenn & Connie Ritchey Community Awards Event Made a Big Splash for COA
Daytona Beach, FL – On May 12, 2017, the 13th Annual Glenn & Connie Ritchey Community Service Award Banquet honored Chris and Charlie Lydecker. The “Swim” theme highlighted their lives together from respective college swim scholarships to being champions for Volusia County today. The event brought together a wide range of personalities and local community leaders for a fun-filled night to benefit Council on Aging’s “Meals on Wheels” program and other senior programs that provide necessary services to the most vulnerable of Volusia County’s seniors.
In a “Toast and Roast” fashion, Mary Greenlees and John Olivari toasted Chris Lydecker while Teresa Rand and Mori Hosseini roasted Charlie Lydecker. The Lydecker’s response was a heartfelt tribute to their family and to the collective caring power of our Volusia Community.
Glenn Ritchey, Event Host said “We (Volusia County) must do a better job supporting our most needy seniors. Raising awareness and money through this event is just a start.”
The event was presented by Life Preserver Sponsor Brown & Brown Insurance, Champion Sponsor Halifax Health, and Medley Sponsors Florida Hospital, ICI Homes, Jon Hall Chevrolet, The Lydecker Family, Olivari & Associates, CPAs & Consultants. COA thanks them for their assistance in raising awareness of the plight of needy seniors here in Volusia County.
