Fort Worth, Texas – Sister Cities Recognizes Global Award Recipients
Mayor Betsy Price and Dinner Chairs, Joanna and Michael Crain, lead the crowd of nearly 400 through an evening of international cuisine and entertainment as Sister Cities recognized and honored individuals, businesses, and organizations that have made significant contributions to citizen diplomacy, global understanding, world political stability, and international commerce.
Awards were presented to:
Bell – THE GLOBAL NEXUS AWARD
Rotary International – THE GLOBAL CITIZENS AWARD
Bell received the Global Nexus Award as good representatives of Fort Worth to the world, creating commerce and a healthier community for all. Rotary International was given the Global Citizens Award for their strong representation of Fort Worth by creating a positive view of the U.S. through educational and humanitarian initiatives.
The event was made possible by the Fort Worth Sister Cities 2018 Members Circle, a network of individuals, organizations, corporations and community leaders committed to expanding global relationships for peace and prosperity at home and abroad. Funding and in-kind support from the City of Fort Worth plays a key role in its mission, but most work is made possible through public support through the Members Circle.
The dinner was held May 24 to celebrate 33 years of service by Sister Cities to the City of Fort Worth. Entertainment was provided by La Pompe, Fort Worth Scottish Pipes & Drums and Arts Fifth Avenue.
