Please join the Junior League of Topeka as we honor Tara Dimick as the 2022 recipient of the Community Volunteer Award at its 3rd Annual Jockey’s, Juleps & Junior League Kentucky Derby FUNdraiser on Saturday, May 7, 2022. Each year, the Junior League of Topeka Community Volunteer Award is presented annually to an individual who is not a member of the Junior League, but has had a tremendous impact on our community – and this year, you’d be hard pressed to find someone in Topeka who has not been impacted by the work of this year’s honoree. Tara has contributed so much to the Topeka community. Truly, her resume alone is impressive but anyone who has met her knows her heart is even more so. Whether she’s helping small business owners, or serving on community boards to ensure Topeka is a fantastic place to live, work and play, she is a force for good and an agent for change. Two things the Junior League was founded on.
Currently, our honoree serves as an elected member of the Auburn-Washburn School Board. She is President of the Topeka Community Foundation – an organization founded by the Junior League of Topeka.
She is the Foundation Relations Chair for the Stormont Vail Foundation Board, a Member of the Kansas Chamber Board, a Member of Topeka Civic Theater and an active member of Momentum 2027 … just to name a few.
Tara works tirelessly to support small businesses whether it’s consulting them, promoting them, or personally running them. She’s been an advocate for non-profits in our community by being a force behind the Envista Cares program which has put thousands of dollars urgently needed by our not-for-profits to do amazing work right here in Topeka supporting our community members. And she has worked tirelessly the last couple of years to ensure a balance for supporting students, educators and families in the Topeka community through her work with USD 437 Auburn Washburn School District.
So without further ado, Congratulations Tara Dimick, the 2022 Community Volunteer Honoree!
