Cox Celebrates Nurses With $1,000 Prizes And Donations To Local Nonprofits
PARMA – (June 15, 2022) – Everyday, nurses go to work facing unknown challenges. Despite the unpredictability of their jobs, nurses are accustomed to dealing with the unexpected – but even the most seasoned nurses likely weren’t expecting to face a pandemic in addition to their daily duties. That’s why Cox Communications decided to enlist the support of the community to recognize deserving nurses with a $1,000 prize for the many ways they improve the lives of everyone around them.
The request for nominations was put out over Facebook in a heavily socialized campaign, which yielded well over 150 responses. With no shortage of deserving candidates, Cox identified winners in each of its northeast footprint states of Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Ohio. The winners all shared many qualities, including selfless commitment to community; longstanding tenure in their roles with outstanding track records; and the ability to change lives for the better, every step of the way.
In Ohio, Cox recognized the following nurses: Lou Novak, Cleveland Clinic (hometown – Berea); and Lauren Zak, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital (hometown – Westlake).
Each winner received a $1,000 award and a $500 donation made in their name to the nonprofit of their choosing. Winners were informed via Zoom meeting that they had been nominated by a peer and selected by a jury from among a large pool of contestants.
“Nurses show us every day how invaluable they are to our collective wellbeing,” Rob Brill, market vice president, Cox Communications. “We at Cox have all been personally affected by a nurse in some way, and because of that, we were compelled to find a way to say thank you as a company for all that they do. Congratulations to all of our winners across the region.”
Jeff Lavery is the public relations manager for Cox Communications in the northeast.
