THE ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE SOCIETY
The Zest of OC
This year’s Alexis de Tocqueville Society Celebration was a major success. The event was truly inspiring and left us excited to continue transforming the lives of our neighbors in need.
The room was overflowing with the “zest” of Orange County’s philanthropic spirit! Thanks to the generosity of so many of you, including our incredible sponsors, we raised over half a million dollars! These vital funds will support our work to ensure local students succeed, struggling OC families gain financial security, and our homeless neighbors find a place to call home.
Congratulations again to our medal honorees. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to create lasting change in our community.
Taking Action Medal – Linda and Mike Mussallem, prominent philanthropists, show their steadfast commitment and intrinsic drive to create change by generously supporting our community and consistently stepping up to help address the critical issues facing Orange County. Their leadership and devotion has raised the bar in the area of social responsibility.
Legacy Medal – Artyn and Max Gardner, dedicated supporters of Orange County United Way for over 20 years. They have embodied the spirit of giving time and again by actualizing their philanthropy in profoundly tangible ways, serving and leading in multiple capacities all while giving generously.
Inspiration Medal – Maya Patel and the Tarsadia Foundation, steadfast champions of the United to End Homelessness initiative. The foundation catalyzes lasting change through inclusive mobility of under-represented communities and by ardently supporting our efforts to end homelessness.
