It’s back! Pillars of Strength and Crystal Apple Awards banquet May 4
re you eager for a celebration? We’re bringing the popular Pillars of Strength and Crystal Apple Awards banquet back, in person, at the Cowlitz County Event Center on May 4.
One of the most impactful aspects of the Pillars of Strength and Crystal Apple Awards banquet is the presentation of scholarships for our local high school students. Lower Columbia Professionals raised funds all year to award $1,000 scholarships at this event. As of publication, they were well on their way to reach their goal of $20,000 for 20 recipients! Thanks to the generous support of sponsors, scholarship winners and their parents will be our guests for the evening. Sponsors and contributors will have the great pleasure of seeing the impact of their support when these students walk up to the stage to accept their scholarships and share their dreams with us.
