HERO AWARD & Recognition Awards

2017 Hero Award Recipients - Rob & Maria Coppola

The AVM Foundation established the HERO Award to honor a Company or an individual(s) who have dedicated themselves, or the Company, to the Mission of our Son’s Foundation. 

This year it is our honor to bestow the Award to Maria and Rob Coppola.  Maria and Rob have been with us since the first day AVM was created in 2009. 

Maria has been the Basket Chairperson for the last seven years.  She has been instrumental in every aspect of the Basket Room.  Rob has been the Chairperson of our Silent Auction and was our Golf Chairperson for 2 years.  He has been instrumental in creating awareness of our Golf Event and Annual Fundraiser in the Western New York Community. 

This just touches upon a small part of the input they have had, both professionally and personally, to our family. 

For their unending time and talent they have given to our son’s Foundation, it is with great gratitude that we present the HERO Award to Maria and Rob Coppola.

This is our way of saying Thank You for all of your help and dedication.
