George Karakehian will be receiving the Virginia Patterson Business Person of the Year Award. George is the former president of the Imagine! Foundation board of directors and is a real “go-getter.” His habit of getting things done quickly and efficiently led to great strides for the Foundation.
Along with his wife Kristin, George has been active with the Foundation since its inception. He organized special fundraisers, hosted events at his home, and assisted in the planning and preparation for several community outreach luncheons as well as the annual Imagine! Celebration and Dinner.
In his role as president of the Foundation board, George led the charge in the creation of Imagine!’s first SmartHome. He worked to secure land for the new home as well as to find new funding sources and in-kind donors for the project.
Even though he is no longer board president, George is still active in the Foundation and in supporting the SmartHomes project. He is even serving as the emcee at tonight’s Foundation Celebration Dinner and Auction, proceeds from which will support both SmartHomes.
Congratulations George, and thanks for all you have done for us!
