The San Diego Del Norte Chapter of the National Charity League recently honored Patroness Loraine Dyson, Class of 2014, with the Mary Kollus Memorial Award, which is given in her memory to a Patroness for her “Congeniality and Goodwill.”
Mary Kollus, Class of 2007, was not only dedicated and giving to the many philanthropies of the San Diego del Norte Chapter but she also served the Patroneses in the Chapter with her time, special spirit, caring and loving personality. Mary Kollus’ warmth, sensitivity and good natured spirit were a welcoming presence to all.
Loraine Dyson was voted by her peers within NCL to receive this award, which was presented at the May Mother-Daughter Luncheon at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. She has served in leadership positions on the board for over three years. The last two years she served as Vice President Ticktockers orchestrating many NCL events including the annual service-oriented Ticktocker Day and more recently chaired an outreach, along with her daughter, Dallas, to furnish and outfit Alumni Cottages at San Pasqual Academy, a residential high school for foster teens.
“I was so surprised to receive this award,” Dyson said, “because all the women in our Chapter are deserving. They all have a heart for community service and love working side by side with their daughters to provide goodwill to others!”
The mission of the National Charity League is to foster the mother-daughter relationship in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
