This last week we had the wonderful privilege of kicking off our first Legend ceremony of 2013 by honoring two amazing people – Bunnie and Dorsey Twidwell. The Twidwells were recognized as our first Legends for this year, in a ceremony held on Wednesday, March 27th, at 12:45pm, held at the Holiday Inn. During the ceremony The Austin Exchange Club received a $1,000 pay-it-forward donation in Bunnie and Dorsey Twidwell’s name from RecognizeGood.
Bunnie and Dorsey were recognized for their longstanding work as members of The Exchange Club, the organization that owns and organizes the Zilker Kite Festival. One hallmark of their success – the Zilker Kite Festival raised over $10,000 for Communities in Schools with a focus on the Pebble Project in last year’s event – occurred because of the Twidwell’s dedicated investment of over 800 personal hours each. Further, this dynamic husband and wife team became the recognized pillars of leadership for other volunteers involved the Kite Festival, providing project management and expertise for the past 15 years of the 85-year old festival…and they’re not yet done!
