Virginia Hemophilia Foundation is proud to recognize Tory Gilliam, VHF Board Secretary, as our third nominee for 2020 Volunteer of the Year. Tory works as Senior Event Producer at MOSAIC Catering for his professional job, and is serving in his second year on the VHF Board. He is also involved in the Scholarship, Governance and Red Tie Fundraiser committees for VHF.
“I became involved with the hemophilia community through working for a local chapter in Florida after college. Throughout my time there, I was blown away by how community-focused the organization was and how much support was derived from the fellowship of the families of those affected. From my time as a chapter employee, I learned so much about hemophilia and other bleeding disorders and how much impact they have on the family as a whole. And after meeting the staff and other volunteers, I could tell that VHF has a team of amazing leaders to execute the mission, always keeping patients, their families and the community at the center of their work.
Giving back through non-profit work is something that I’ve always been passionate about. Throughout my career in the event world, I’ve worked with a variety of non-profit organizations. With VHF, I’ve been able to see firsthand the impact of fundraisers, advocacy activities and volunteer efforts.”
We are so grateful for your support as a volunteer and as a donor, Tory, and can’t wait to see what you do next!
