Recently, Shannon Puhl, a Families for a Cure board member, was surprised by her co-workers when they told her that they nominated her for Dom’s Summer Sizzler, an award given to individuals making a difference in their community. Dom Tiberi of 10TV new selected Shannon as the final recipient of the 2017 Summer Sizzler Recognition. Yesterday, Shannon and 30+ of her co-workers attended a BBQ with Dom that was catered by Schmidt’s to celebrate her nomination. Here’s the nomination her co-workers used to nominate her:
My coworker, Shannon Puhl, and her husband, Pat who also works at Nationwide Insurance, are exceptional professionally and personally. Shannon is genuine and kind. She works hard and clearly embodies the values that make Nationwide Insurance a great place to work. Not only does Shannon have a great reputation for hard work and dedication at Nationwide, she also works hard outside work to make a real difference. When not raising her sons, Shannon and Pat, along with a small, motivated group of volunteers, founded “Families for a Cure”, a non-profit with the goal of uniting families impacted by cancer to raise money for cancer research and to provide patient care. “Families for a Cure” likes to say they put the “fun” in “fundraising” as they drive toward a goal to raise $1 million by 2021. Through their many events and activities, they are on track to reach that goal and have raised over $750,000 to date.
I have not met anyone else I think more deserving of special recognition and I think a summer sizzler with Schmidt’s would be a great way to recognize and thank Shannon for all that she does. I really hope you select Shannon Puhl, you’d be making a great choice!
Thank you Shannon for your dedication to Families for a Cure!
