Children’s Village is honoring the men and women who champion health care for children with special needs at the second, bi-annual Promise Awards on Nov. 14, 2013.

 The Promise Awards were created to honor those who help to fulfill the promise that no child will go without the vital services he or she needs – a vision that is becoming a lasting legacy at Children’s Village. The event is fashioned after the Oscar’s with nominees solicited from parents, staff, community leaders and CV advocates.  A board of key stakeholders selected the winners based on the number of votes/nominations they received.
