Congrats to Angelique Fong for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Susan G. Komen Orange County
Honoree Category: Health
Why Nominated: When Angelique joined Susan G Komen’s Orange County Affiliate in 2014 she started helping with outreach events – primarily targeting the Spanish speaking community utilizing her Spanish language skills and drawing on her survivorship experience to engage woman. She is passionate about reaching women who may not otherwise commit to getting a mammogram or seek medical advice being too afraid, not having the resources or simply being uninformed about what they need to do to take care of themselves.
She is a member of our Speaker’s Bureau and draws on her personal experience to connect with the people she presents to. Angelique helps in our office on a weekly basis answering phones and working on administrative projects to support our staff.
She is a member of the Pink Tie Ball Committee and is excited to be working on soliciting support and resources for the event this year.
She was awarded the Outstanding New Volunteer Award at our Komen Orange County Volunteer Recognition Event which was held on February 21, 2015.
