Whose generosity of time and talent has made a difference in Winona?


Nominations for the Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute accepted through February 3

Winona Health Foundation is seeking nominations for the Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute.

“We’ve made the nomination form easy to complete, and this is a wonderful opportunity to recognize someone who makes a positive difference in our community,” said Betsy Midthun, vice president of community engagement at Winona Health.

The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute is awarded to an outstanding person, persons or community organization who has made a significant difference and positive impact on the Winona region and/or Winona Health. Candidates will be evaluated on their generosity of time, spirit, energy and/or charitable donations. Nomination forms are available online at winonahealth.org/tribute and will be accepted through Friday, February 3.

The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute was established by the late community philanthropist, Benjamin A. Miller, in the name of his wife, Adith. In addition to a special recognition dinner at Cedar Valley Restaurant, the family of Ben and Adith Miller and RTP Company honors the recipient with a $25,000 contribution to the Ben & Adith Miller Patient Care Fund to assist area individuals and families.

Last year, Jon Kohner received the Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute for the countless hours of service he has given the Winona community. Those who nominated Kohner reflected on his quiet consistency to saying “yes” when asked to volunteer.

Written nominations are being accepted now through February 3. For more information including a nomination form, visit winonahealthfoundation.org/tribute. Those with questions may call 507-474-3328.
