Two dedicated Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition volunteers have been awarded the prestigious Bank of America Local Heroes Award. Sisters Carol Knotts and Bev Michel have been volunteering with the coalition for years helping with the Northern Lights of Life gala each fall and the Southern Lights of Life gala in the late winter. Knotts, of Chadds Ford, Pa., has raised over $300,000 for the coalition by obtaining donations for the live and silent auctions for the Northern Lights of Life event. Michel, of West Chester, donates her time and talent as a master photographer/owner of Bev Michel Photography. Michel donates portraits of the models for the Lights of Life galas and photographs the event.
The Bank of America Local Heroes Award is for those who exemplify the bank’s highest standards in community service, are champions for a vital cause, inspire others to get involved and have a special and significant impact on individuals, families, and their community. Knotts and Michel were awarded a $5,000 grant and directed their grant to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
Thank you Carol and Bev for your hard work and dedication to the fight against breast cancer!
