Seventh Annual John Young History Maker Celebration
May 2, 2012 - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Ann Sonntag, publisher of the Orlando Business Journal, will receive the Historical Society of Central Florida’s highest honor at
the seventh annual John Young History Maker Celebration. The John Young History Maker Award, named after Capt. John Young, is given each year to a Central Floridian whose achievement has made a historic impact on the community. The History Maker Celebration is the Historical Society’s largest fundraiser of the year and will be held at The Ballroom at Church Street.
The John Young History Maker Past award will be given posthumously to former Orlando Mayor Carl Langford, who passed away July 9, 2011. The Historical Society of Central Florida will announce the recipient of the 2012 John Young History Maker Future Award and scholarship at the May 2nd celebration. The $2,500 scholarship is awarded annually to one outstanding Orange
County public high school senior planning to attend a four-year university. Funds raised from the event support nationally important exhibitions and educational programs that served more than 150,000 children and adults in the community last year alone.
Sponsorships, tables, and tickets are available for the gala event, including a reception at
5:30 p.m. and ceremony and dinner at 6:30 p.m.
