The 42nd Annual Heart Awards Dinner by Variety the Children’s Charity was a glamorous night full of familiar faces from all across the North Shore. It was a tribute night filled with music, entertainment and accolades for people who give their time and dedication to an organization that we all known and love. Many of those recognized this night work behind the scenes at the annual Show of Hearts Telethon, while others were recognized for their corporate contributions and fundraising efforts. Congrats to all involved.
