Charles G. Uram Award

Charles G. Uram was a friend and mentor to many and demonstrated the true value that is derived from volunteering and donating to our community. Chuck will always be remembered by the community and the Rockford Cosmopolitan Club as the person called upon to lead fund drives for many local nonprofits.

Chuck’s spirit lives on through this annual award created to recognize community leaders with Chuck’s style and record of lifetime achievement.

Nominations will be accepted now through March 15, 2017. The Rockford Cosmopolitan Club will select each year’s recipient. The individual selected for the award will be recognized for their efforts on April 27, 2017 at the Rockford Cosmopolitan Club’s Charities Awards Dinner at Forest Hills Country Club.

The organization that nominates the award recipient will receive a $5,000 donation from Rockford Cosmopolitan Charities.
