Safety 2012: Donor Reception
On June 4, more than 200 Foundation supporters gathered at the Hyatt Regency in Denver to celebrate a successful year of Foundation programming. An invitation-only event, the Donor Reception is a time for Foundation donors to meet some of the scholarship and grant recipients they support, and an opportunity for the Foundation to thank everyone who participates in the Foundation community.
As guests mingled and enjoyed their cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, Foundation Chair Eddie Greer invited David H. LaCook of FabEnCo, Inc. to speak. LaCook presented the Foundation with several checks totaling $110,000, to be split between the Safety Matters Fund and an annual $4,000 scholarship, the FabEnCo LaCook Investment for Excellence (LIFE) in Occupational Safety & Health Scholarship.
2012 Scholarship & Grant Winners
"There were several milestones that lined up this year that corresponded with our setting up the FanEnCo LIFE Scholarship," LaCook explained, "This is the 40th year of FabEnCo offering its safety gate product line, as well as my 40th year as an employee and my 20th year as President. Those cumulative years added up as a perfect complement to ASSE’s celebration of its 100th anniversary last October."
Thank you to all those who attended the reception, and we look forward to inviting you back next year. Your generosity, support, and commitment enable the Foundation to continue moving forward, expanding our programs, and strengthening the future of the profession.
