PCRC’s 8th Annual Building Empathy and Respect Awards and Benefit   April 11th, 2019   6:00 – 8:30 pm   Hiller Aviation Museum   601 Skyway Rd. - San Carlos     Empathy: Power and Potential   Every year, PCRC recognizes the extraordinary impact of ordinary people. We celebrate the power of empathy and respect in improving the lives of community members every day throughout San Mateo County. We also raise funds to advance our mission of partnering with individuals, groups, and institutions to empower people, build relationships, and reduce violence through collaborative and innovative processes.     Our BER event attracts, on average, 300 business, nonprofit, education, government, philanthropic, and community leaders from all corners of San Mateo County. This year, we return to the fabulous Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, where guests will be able to tour the aircrafts on display while socializing with friends and colleagues, old and new.   You will hear how our BER awardees’ service to others has led them on journeys across San Mateo County, the country, and the world to reduce violence, promote peace, connect underserved individuals and families to support services and economic opportunities, and help communities design and work toward their own unique visions for their futures.     All of our awardees are true examples of the impact one person, through empathy and respect in words, deeds, and actions can make in the lives of so many others. Prepare to be moved and inspired!       2019 PCRC Building Empathy & Respect Awardees   Pastor Paul Bains, Community and Faith Leader, East Palo Alto  BER Award for providing services to support human dignity in local communities.    Regina Stanback Stroud, RN, Ed.D., President, Skyline College, San Bruno BER Awardee for advocating education as an avenue to life transformation and enhancing the vibrancy of San Mateo County.    The Honorable Jackie Speier, U.S. Representative of California’s 14th Congressional District, San Mateo BER Award for bringing women’s rights issues to a national legislative platform and tirelessly working for violence prevention.   Jon Kaufman, Founder, H2OpenDoors, Redwood City BER Award for leveraging talent, technology, and compassion in partnership with Rotary International to improve health and economic opportunity for communities in underdeveloped parts of the world.       To discuss sponsorship packages or any other questions please contact: Rosie Rivera at rrivera@pcrcweb.org    NOTE:  Government Code Section 84224(a) requires 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to disclose behetsed payments. A behested payment is made when a state or local elected official or a member of California’s Public Utilities Commission solicits a donation to an organization, such as a 501(c)(3), that is used for legislative, governmental or charitable purposes. These payments are not considered campaign contributions or gifts. While state law limits the amount of campaign contributions and gifts, there are no limits on behested payments. State law requires that behested payments be reported if they total $5,000 or more per calendar year from a single source. Officials must report the behested payments within 30 days of the date they are made. Please note that in order to maintain compliance with California's Fair Poliical Practices Act, all donor names and addresses must be reported.
