Pitkin County Cares

Now in its 23rd year, the 2023 Pitkin County Cares awards and Greg Mace award were established to honor individuals and groups for their service, leadership, and civic involvement. Nominate community members who spend their time and energy giving to others in Pitkin County. Nominees do not need to be residents, but their volunteer efforts must have taken place in Pitkin County. The nomination deadline is July 31, 2023 and the Pitkin County Commissioners will recognize award winners in the Fall.

The recipients of the 2022 Pitkin County Cares Volunteer Service and Greg Mace Awards will be honored by the Pitkin County Commissioners during a televised work session on Tuesday, September 13th at 10 a.m. 

A record 21 outstanding Roaring Fork Valley residents were chosen from nominations received from a cross-section of community organizations and nonprofits throughout the summer.

Now in its 22nd year, the purpose of the program is to honor individuals and groups for their outstanding service, leadership, and civic involvement. Read more in our press release.
