Patty awarded each of our PiPs with beautiful, framed "Kids' Tiles" made from art specially commissioned from the amazing kid artists at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kern County.  The Foundation also commissioned a glass worker from Poland to create beautiful crystal hearts for the Panero Family Partner level gifts.  Jacob and Dan looked great holding those beautiful pieces.  
We will continue to award our PiPs as new partners join us and as our existing partners reach new levels.
