Local Focus: Newport Residents to be Honored on National Philanthropy Day

“The practice of giving money and time to help make life better for other people.”

That’s how Webster’s dictionary defines the word “philanthropy.”

For a local definition, you’d simply find two names listed: Victoria Collins and Natalie Cernius. These two community volunteers are being honored at the 28th annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon being held at Hyatt Regency Irvine on Thursday, November 21.
