    The DePreist Award for Excellence was established in 2000 to honor the contributions of the late Oregon Symphony Maestro James “Jimmy” DePreist and his wife Ginette to the Portland community. “The DePreists remind us of the importance of service to others as well as the value of the arts in our community,” said Kay Toran, President/CEO of Volunteers of America Oregon. VOA Oregon is proud to announce Gwyneth Gamble Booth as the honoree for 2017. This year's event will take place on Thursday, September 7, 2017 from 5:30 - 9:00 p.m. at the Portland Art Museum.
