United Way Regina’s Spirit Awards are presented annually at the Spirit Awards Luncheon in January following the campaign. The Spirit Awards celebrate excellence in workplace campaigns all across the city.
Dr. Jack Boan Lifetime Achievement Award
This inaugural award is named after someone near and dear to United Way Regina and it’s fair to say, Regina as a whole. He is someone who gives generously both of his time and treasure to so many worthwhile organizations in our city. We are grateful he has been such a tremendous supporter and advocate of United Way and hope that this award, in his name, demonstrates in some small measure, our appreciation for his lifetime of commitment to United Way.
