Honoree: Amber Omran
Honored by: WISEPlace
Cause Area: Hunger & Homelessness
Amber is an enthusiastic, energetic and resourceful advocate for WISEPlace. She has been a most valuable player since she joined our annual event planning team in 2013. There is no assignment too small for her to take on or too large for her to tackle. She out-solicits everyone on the team, brings resources from all of her numerous contacts and truly has a heart for the women we serve in our shelter program for unaccompanied homeless women. She brings in diverse and exciting silent and live auction items; she has been the volunteer coordinator for the day of our event; she has secured professional entertainment and video talent for our event. She has now accepted the co-chair position for our event. She also personally comes with a group of her friends once a month on a Sunday morning to buy, prepare and serve breakfast to our residents. She spends time with the women, getting to know them and letting them know that someone cares for them, respects them and is here to help them. The thing that is most memorable about Amber is her amazingly upbeat and all-in approach to everything she does. Not only is she a rock star for our team, she is a whole lot of fun to have around!
