The H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement
During the Wine for Hope, we honor the year’s H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement recipient.
In 2014, The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley introduced the H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement. It is presented to an individual who is: Honorable. Outstanding. Philanthropic. Excellent. This prestigious award was first presented to Henry Nemenz for his many decades of donating time, money and resources to improve the quality of life of children and families in our community.
2017 H.O.P.E. Award Recipient: Raymond P. Marrow
Marrow’s nomination highlighted his work creating not one, but two youth mentoring programs in the last 10 years. Both are offered after school and on weekends and combine exercise with worship to keep kids off the streets.
- 2016 – George Gabriel
- 2015 – Jack Gocala, Sr.
- 2014 – Henry Nemenz
