Annual Tin Man Biggest Heart Award
In the iconic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, the Tin Man character traveled to The Emerald City with Dorothy because he believed he needed a heart from The Wizard. In reality. he had the biggest heart all along. The Tin Man was humble, loving, caring and compassionate.
Behind every person in the limelight are usually many who make the road easier, and do a great amount of the work, give of themselves, their time, and/or their gifts.
These unsung heroes are the heart of our community, and they are continually the heart of how The Carousel Center is able to offer the healing services to the child victims of abuse/neglect and maltreatment, who utilize our Child Advocacy Center each year.
Two categories will be awarded at our February event: Community Professional – Awarded to a community multi-disciplinary team partner who goes above and beyond in their efforts to assist child victims of abuse. Nominees may include area Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, DSS Social Workers, Advocates, Medical Providers, Clinicians, or others who collaborate with The Carousel Center to ensure justice, support or healing for local child abuse survivors and their families. Community Volunteer – Awarded to a community volunteer who goes above and beyond in their efforts to assist child victims of abuse through thick and thin. These Biggest Hearts in Cape Fear Community give of their time, energy, talents and/or financially to ensure The Carousel Center remains available for child and families who need Child Advocacy Center services.
