In 2016, the Italian American Professional Business Club lost their long time chaplain and the pastor of St. Anthony's Parish, Father James Ragnoni. The club wanted a way to honor Father Jim and all he meant to the club, his parishioners, and the North Hill community. After much discussion, the club decided to institute a Father James Ragnoni Humanitarian Award give each year at our year end GALA. The recipients exhibit the qualities to love and to help others as Father Jim did. This distinguished award is the club's most prestigious honor given out to those that go above and beyond in the community to make a difference. All our recipients have put into action our club's motto which is, "One hand to greet & one hand to give."
If you know someone that has gone above and beyond in our community and is deserving of the Father James Ragnoni Humanitarian Award please fill out the below application and return by email to email@example.com or mail in to our IAPBC PO BOX 2201 E Maple St, North Canton, OH 44720. Nominee deadlines are due by September 30th every year.
