United Way of Snohomish County is offering free Everett AquaSox tickets to all volunteers in Snohomish County and their families, good for the Monday, Aug. 6 game at 6:40 p.m. at Everett Memorial Stadium, 3900 Broadway in Everett. The organization will also present the winner of this year’s Roger Bouck Award for Volunteerism in Action just before the first pitch against the Boise Hawks.
“Snohomish County has a very generous spirit,” said Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “We are thrilled to once again offer a tangible ‘thank you’ to all of our county’s volunteers – not just the ones who work with United Way – and to recognize one of this year’s most outstanding volunteers in Snohomish County.”
The award recognizes an individual or organization that demonstrates visible support for volunteerism, shows results achieved in promoting volunteerism, mobilizes volunteers or increases the community’s ability to mobilize and engage volunteers, and has a community-wide focus.
Last year’s winner of the Roger Bouck Award was Janet Kavadas, a long-time volunteer with United Way of Snohomish County, The YMCA of Snohomish County and the South Snohomish County Health and Safety Network.
Any Snohomish County resident who volunteered with any organization in any capacity is eligible for the free tickets for themselves and their family. To reserve tickets, call 425-374-5530 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Roger Bouck Award for Volunteerism in Action is named for Roger Bouck, a tireless volunteer with United Way of Snohomish County, Rotary International and Bluebills. He was the recipient of the Governor’s Award for Excellence for Outstanding Volunteer Service in 2005. In 2006, he received United Way’s Spirit of Snohomish County Reeves/Sievers Founders’ Award for lifetime commitment to community service. He passed away in 2009.
