The Spirit of the Foundation Award was created in 1999 to acknowledge those community members who have gone above and beyond in support of the mission of the BGPR Foundation. The mission is to support and enhance the activities of the Parks & Recreation Department and to help ensure that it will continue to provide quality leisure opportunities for the residents of Bowling Green. This year the Spirit of the Foundation Award was given to Gail and Larry Nader, who have done so much for the Bowling Green Parks and its Foundation. Larry was a Foundation Board member for many years and was Foundation Board President for a period of time. Larry and Gail have contributed mightily to our Annual Wine and Cheese Social event, every year:

  • Loaning us dozens of wine glasses,
  • Making their fabulous artichoke dip
  • Offering & then preparing their Lebanese dinner
  • Partnering with other generous donors in a progressive dinner for the Live Auction
  • Assisting as emcee at the Live Auction

The Parks and Recreation Foundation is proud to have Larry and Gail Nader as partners in our mission!!
