On January 31st the Des Moines Register announced that Iowa Legal Aid, Goodwill Industries of Central Iowa, Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Iowa, Anawim Housing and Visiting Nurse Services of Iowa were finalists for the Aurora Award, given to organizations or institutions in central Iowa that make "a measurable difference in the community without thought to awards or public recognition."
The award, in its eighth year, began as an opportunity to recognize diverse contributions made in the community by organizations.
"The Des Moines Register takes great pride in our community," said Register publisher Laura Hollingsworth. "It's an honor to celebrate the people and organizations whose commitment and hard work guarantees a brighter future for the greater Des Moines area."
Iowa Legal Aid was nominated for the honor by Ivan Webber of the firm of Ahlers and Cooney P.C. An independent and anonymous panel reviews the nominations and votes, with the top vote getters receiving recognition as finalists.
Boys and Girls Club of Central Iowa was announced as the winner February 10th at the Temple for Performing Arts in downtown Des Moines.
