2009 – Susan and Peter Manion

In the first and only time that a couple has received the Parke Wright award, Sue (Class IV) and Peter (Class III) were honored for their incredible work with Fun Time Early Childhood Academy. In 2006, when the nonprofit was on the brink of bankruptcy, they took over as co-chairs, recruited a new board and raised sufficient dollars to pay the outstanding bills and keep the program open. They then launched a campaign to build a new, much-needed school, which continues to serve children from River Park and other areas of Naples. Individually, they have also made significant contributions to other nonprofits in the area, and they continue to be involved with Fun Time.
