We are delighted to announce that Rick Blangiardi will be presented the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Award for Distinguished Community Service at the Gala.

With over 42 years in the field of sports, broadcasting and television there is no individual more deserving of this recognition. Rick has long been a valued friend and critical partner of March of Dimes. Indeed, he is the epitome of someone who has made meaningful, lasting change and touched the lives of thousands of individuals where they live, learn, work, and play in Hawaii.

It should not surprise you to hear that Rick is taking an active role to ensure the Gala is a great success. His stalwart belief in the March of Dimes--its impact and mission to fight for the health of all moms and babies--compels him to do so. Rick considers the March of Dimes work in Hawaii as essential to so many families in need and deserving of our utmost support.

 
2019 HAWAII MARCH OF DIMES ANNUAL GALA
Join us at the 24th Annual March of Dimes Gala as we present Rick Blangiardi the March of Dimes Franklin Delano Roosevelt Award for Distinguised Community Service and celebrate our 81 year legacy, impact and innovation as we continue to lead the fight for the health of all moms and babies

 Since 1996, this prestigious event has raised more than $9 million to support March of Dimes local programs for moms and babies, including the NICU Family Support Program at Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children. The proceeds have also funded pioneering research at the national level that has led to major discoveries and breakthroughs including placental biology to help determine the causes and prevention of birth defects and recent developments in blood testing to help predict premature birth.
 

 

EVENT LEADERSHIP

Rick Blangiardi has personally selected us to serve as Co-chairs for this year’s Gala. As a leader who inspires others to mentor those that will follow in their footsteps, we have both thrived under Rick’s mentorship and are proud to represent him and one of his favorite causes--the March of Dimes.

Please join us in honoring Rick with an award that genuinely captures his heart.  
Help commemorate the 81st Anniversary of March of Dimes and its remarkable legacy.
