EVENT DETAILS

Join us as we honor nursing excellence and pay tribute to the tireless efforts of nurses throughout the community while also raising valuable funds for March of Dimes. Nurses are nominated by colleagues, supervisors or the families they have served. At a culminating awards breakfast in October, we will celebrate the profession and recognize outstanding nurses in up to 18 diverse categories. For sponsorship information please contact Annie Flanigan at 971-270-2891.

SUPPORT THE MISSION

Every year, 15 million babies are born prematurely worldwide, and 1 million will die before their first birthday. Your gift helps the March of Dimes fund research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.

EVENT LEADERSHIP

Thanks to the leadership of our volunteer chairs and committee members, we are honored to present Nurse of the Year events. After months of hard work, these volunteers have taken the event to new heights, honoring more nurses than ever before. The March of Dimes and the families we support are grateful for the generosity and effort of the team that made this event possible.
