2023 People of Vision Award Honors Bill McDonnell and PNC Bank

The Prevent Blindness Ohio, Joe Shrader and Shrader Tire & Oil (2022 honoree) hosted the Annual People of Vision Award presentation on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 honoring Bill McDonnell and PNC Bank for their outstanding philanthropic work in Northwest Ohio communities.

The People of Vision Award was established in 1985 by Prevent Blindness to honor and recognize visionary organizations and their top leadership for the outstanding work they have undertaken to enhance the quality of life within their communities.  The premise of the People of Vision Award is that our community is enriched by such leadership which reflects a “vision of community” to be celebrated and emulated.
