The evening will also feature the presentation of the annual Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope Award, an honor bestowed to an individual or corporation who has made outstanding contributions to the world of melanoma awareness and prevention. Suzanne Donahue lost her battle with melanoma in 2012. She journeyed long and hard, but did so with grace, love of life and hope. It is this passion and inspiration that is recognized through this award. This year’s Keeper of the Hope honoree is Ken Driscoll of Solect Energy.
“Each year the Board of Directors of IMPACT Melanoma awards the Keeper of the Hope Award to a member of our IMPACT community whose generosity, vision and commitment to the organization over time is unwavering,” said IMPACT Melanoma Executive Director, Deb Girard. “Ken Driscoll and Solect Energy epitomize just that. Unwavering commitment and care, just as we are about the work that we do daily. We’re so pleased to present him with this award, and are really looking forward to seeing everyone at our annual Shades of Hope Gala!”
