Three finalists have been chosen for the McPherson County Community Foundation’s Philanthropist of the Year award.

June Anderson, Verla Thomason, and Warren Vincent will be recognized next month at a special reception at the McPherson Opera House and each will be given the opportunity to name a McPherson County organization as the recipient of the cash award.

The cash grants are $1000 for the first place nominee, $750 for second place and $500 for third.

The Philanthropist of the Year award was originally started as the Volunteer of the Year back in 2008. Since that time, the Foundation has named 18 individuals as recipients.

June Anderson, Verla Thomason, and Warrant Vincent will be honored and the final prizes will be awarded during a special dessert and wine reception November 17th, at 7:00 pm, at the McPherson Opera House, in downtown McPherson.
