Marina Man and Woman of the Year Awards
The Marina Foundation holds an annual fundraising and silent auction event as part of the Marina Man and Woman of the Year Awards ceremony. The Marina Foundation is proud to continue this long running community award program given annually to outstanding Marina citizens. Nominations are for individuals who have served the Marina community with distinction during the calendar year and over a period of years. Two awards – Man of the Year and Woman of the Year - are presented at the event. Awardees for each year are selected by a panel consisting of past recipients of the award (please see list below).
The Marina Community Non-Profit Summit
The Marina Community Non-Profit Summit, hosted by The Marina Foundation, was created to provide a venue for local non-profits to get together to review and discuss programs and projects that are currently in place, and to seek input on the types of programs and activities the community would like to see implemented now and into the future. This networking opportunity is held annually. All Marina non-profit organizations are encouraged to send a representative to this free community event.
