Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres observing the excellent assortment of Silent Auction items from dazziling Judith Ripka jewels to fabulous fashions and even a commemorative bottle of Medea Vodka with an LED message from Richard Thomas.  NMA President Lynn Bozof and Committee Co-Chairs Sara Herbert Galloway, Gary Springer and Lenore Cooney welcomed and greeted colleagues and introduced this year’s honorees: Dr. William Schaffner, Health Achievement Award Honoree for his advocacy of the role of vaccines in protecting individual and community health; Cindy Krejny, Moms on Meningitis Outstanding Service Award for her tireless efforts to educate the public about meningitis and her work with Ohio lawmakers to mandate vaccination for college students; Massachusetts State Senator Jack Hart who pushed the passage of a mandatory vaccination in his home state, with the Nancy Ford Springer Inspiration Award and NASCAR record breaking winner Kyle Busch & his wife Samantha, with the Community Leadership Award for theier continuing efforts of their Kyle Busch Foundation in support of programs that assist disabled and disadvantaged youngsters
Broadcast Journalist Rita Cosby hosted and was the Masters of Ceremonies taking the place for longtime NMA host actor Richard Thomas, who was filming an episose of "LAW AND ORDER."
To everyones suprise Richard Thomas did show up because the film crew finished early as he revealed to me in our interview.
