NSU will proudly bestow the 2019 President’s Award for Excellence in Community Service Award upon automotive magnates and philanthropists Rita and Rick Case at its 21st Annual Celebration of Excellence (COE) gala to be held February 2.

They join an impressive list of honorees that includes The Miniaci Family, Winifred and Joseph C. Amaturo, Mike Jackson, David Horvitz & Francie Bishop Good, Lorraine Thomas and Guy Harvey, just to name a few.

“If you’re looking for a great example of what it means to give back to the community, look no further than our backyard,” said Dr. George Hanbury, President of NSU. “The impact from Rita and Rick Case can be felt here at NSU, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, American Heart Association, Cleveland Clinic, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Habitat for Humanity and many other organizations throughout South Florida.”
