Event Description: Our Annual Recognition Night was held October 18, 2007 at The Marymount School
We are proud to announce our 2007 honorees: Ami Dar and Action Without Borders/Idealist
About Ami: He was born in Israel and grew up there and in Peru and Mexico. At 18, he was drafted into the Israeli army, where he served as a paratrooper in the Lebanese war of 1982. The misery and senseless destruction he saw in Lebanon, combined with the extreme poverty he had seen growing up in Latin America, led him to start Action Without Borders as an organization that would make it easier for people everywhere to take action on the issues that concern them. In 2000 the Stern Family Fund awarded Ami its annual $100,000 Public Interest Pioneer grant (renewed in 2001) to help support his work with AWB. In 2002, 2003, and 2004 the Nonprofit Times included Ami in its annual list of the 50 most influential people in the nonprofit sector.
