Paul Fanizzi, owner of Fanizzi’s Restaurant by the Sea, is being recognized with the 2019 Betty Villari Community Service Award for his dedication, generosity and drive, as demonstrated by its namesake, Betty Villari. The Betty Villari Community Service Award was created in 2017 to recognize the service and commitment made by, long-time volunteer, board member and Founder Betty Villari to Helping Our Women.
“Paul has been a long-time and generous supporter of Helping Our Women. For almost 20 years he has donated to many events that benefit HOW clients with transportation to medical appointments, monthly stipends and the advocacy of a Client Services Manager, so it seems more than fitting that he should be this years’ recipient of this distinguished award,” stated HOW Board Chair, Marianne Clements.
The public is invited to attend the HOW Annual Meeting. In addition to the award presentation, the meeting will include an update on HOW services and volunteer recognition. If interested in attending, please RSVP to [email protected] or call 508-487-4357.
