Bart and Cathy Holaday were honored as Discover Goodwill’s “2019 Guiding Light Award” recipients for their generosity and dedication to Discover Goodwill’s mission-driven programs and services. Discover Goodwill also celebrated the incredible support of community partners and business honorees: GE Johnson Construction Company, Lexus of Colorado Springs, The Salvation Army and Colorado Springs Utilities.
Themed “You Complete the Picture,” the Annual Dinner honored the contributions of every individual who supports the Discover Goodwill mission of helping individuals achieve greater independence: shoppers, donors, board members, volunteers, employees and program participants. Each plays an important part in changing lives throughout the communities of Southern and Western Colorado that Discover Goodwill serves. Last year, the organization served more than 76,000 individuals—including 5,680 who received job training and placement support.
