PAL Award (Group): Cast and Crew of the Fabulous Fifties Show
Similar to the individual award, the Partners and Leadership (PAL) Group Award is presented to a non-public health professional group or organization who has made a significant contribution on behalf of public health. The winner for 2016 is certainly one of the largest if not the most unique group to receive this award. The winner was the Cast and Crew of the Fabulous Fifties Show from Fayetteville, TN. This large community group [over 80 members] puts on an annual show with the profits going to support an eight county cancer support network. It is estimated that the group contributes about $80,000 per year for cancer support services to these counties. The nomination contained several letters of support from individuals who had received support from this group.
