Nancy Pasternak Awarded Mary Maxwell Gates Philanthropy Award
Nancy Pasternak, Founder and President of Prosperity Rings and alumna of Kappa Kappa Gamma (Iota,) was honored to receive the 2011 Mary Maxwell Gates Award for contributions, inspirations, and volunteerism.
Mary Maxwell Gates, the late wife of Bill Gates, Sr., and mother of Bill Gates, was a member of UW’s Beta Pi KKG chapter. As she went about her innumerable volunteer endeavors, she stepped back modestly, not wishing to receive accolades. Mary Gates and her award represent “volunteerism at its best.”
