Mayor Betsy Price and dinner chairs Joanna and Michael Crain led a crowd of nearly 400 through an evening of international cuisine and entertainment as Fort Worth Sister Cities recognized and honored individuals, businesses and organizations that have made significant contributions to citizen diplomacy, global understanding, world political stability and international commerce.
Fort Worth-based Bell received the Global Nexus Award as representatives of the city to the world, creating commerce and a healthier community for all.
Rotary International was given the Global Citizens Award for strong representation of Fort Worth by creating a positive view of the U.S. through educational and humanitarian initiatives.
The event was made possible by the Fort Worth Sister Cities 2018 Members Circle, a network of individuals, organizations, corporations and community leaders committed to expanding global relationships for peace and prosperity at home and abroad. Funding and in-kind support from the City of Fort Worth plays a key role in its mission, but most work is made possible through public support through the Members Circle.
The dinner celebrated 33 years of service by Sister Cities to Fort Worth.
