Julie Mostov and Michelle Ryb will receive the Aaron Grossman Volunteer Service Award when the BBYO Ohio Northern Region holds its annual welcome reception and awards banquet at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at The Venue South inside the Days Inn and Suites, 4742 Brecksville Road in Richfield.
The event is part of the ONR’s regional convention, set for Thursday, April 10, through Sunday, April 13.
Mostov, of South Euclid, and Ryb, of Lyndhurst, have been active with BBYO for many years, said Todd Kay, director of the BBYO Ohio Northern Region. They were the ONR’s first chairs of the Friends and Alumni Network – positions they still hold – and paved the way for how FAN operates in regions across the country, Kay said.
“Julie and Michelle have worked tirelessly to involve people with the local BBYO program,” he said. “They coordinated several events to engage parents and alumni and have helped enhance BBYO programs for our teens. They have been a great asset, and we want to thank them for all they have done.”
The Grossman award honors a person or people who have worked to make a difference in the BBYO and Jewish communities. It is named after a longtime leader of B’nai B’rith locally, nationally and internationally.
BBYO is an international Jewish youth movement based in Washington, D.C., that was formerly B’nai B’rith Youth Organization. The regional office is in Beachwood.
Cost of the banquet is $25. For more information, email Kay at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 216-360-0075.
