Perfect 10 Countdown: Going for the Gold Gala 2018 – DAY 7 – Gala Honorees

It’s DAY 7 of the Going for the Gold Gala Perfect 10 Countdown!

“It takes a village” is my favorite quote to describe my foundation and especially our annual fundraiser. We have always had champions from the corporate, community, non-profit and other sports support and generously give to our event.

Simon M. Lorne, Chief Legal Officer and Vice Chairman of Millennium Management LLC will receive our 2018 Going for the Gold Corporate Award.

“Wendy Hilliard, through her Foundation, has used gymnastics as an entry point to provide discipline and incentives for goal-oriented behavior to a large number of children in generally underserved communities.  I am humbled to receive this honor from the Foundation, and will treasure it greatly.” Simon M. Lorne

We also want to recognize our past honorees and emcees for their wonderful support as well!
