In addition to this reception, United Way of Pennsylvania created the Keystone Spirit of United Way Award to recognize exceptional and sustained volunteer and philanthropic leadership. The criteria for the award were: Exceptional and sustained engagement (giving, advocating, and volunteering) with United Way in their own community, as well as beyond the borders of their community, through the scope and impact of their volunteer work and investment; personal commitment (in addition to or beyond corporate involvement) to the voluntary system of human services as demonstrated by gifts of time and financial resources, with United Way being the main focus of his or her effort; and a quality of performance that inspires others to serve.
There were 8 nominees from United Ways across the state. The nominees include: Lee Butz, Lon Greenburg, Bradley and Barbara Hall, Don and Marjorie Mowery, Mark Pasquerilla, Bill and Jennifer Sordoni, Nancy Davis Williams, Mark and Mimi Worthington.
