Randy Hawthorne, executive director of the Nonprofit Hub and Volunteer Partners, will receive the first Lincoln Luminary Award at the Winter Lights event Sunday.
The event from 4:30-5:30 p.m. had been scheduled for Tower Square at 13th and P streets, but due to projected cold weather, it has been moved to the vacant retail space at 263 N. 13th Street, just north of Tower Square.
The mayor will present Hawthorne with the award in a brief ceremony at 4:55 p.m.
Leadership Lincoln facilitated the selection process for the award, which honors an individual who “has displayed consistent and intentional actions that demonstrate Lincoln’s values and has gone above and beyond in making an impact on Lincoln and its citizens.”
In addition to the awards presentation, Winter Lights will include music from Will Hutchinson, refreshments and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Event partners include the City Parks and Recreation Department, Leadership Lincoln, the Downtown Lincoln Association and the Lincoln Parks Foundation.
