Wellington E. Webb Award for Outstanding Achievement in Healthcare Philanthropy

January 03, 2018

At the 2017 NightShine Gala, the Denver Health Foundation introduced the Wellington E. Webb Award for Outstanding Achievement in Healthcare Philanthropy.  For many years, we have used the Gala to honor those who have made a significant difference in the life of Denver Health and Denver Health Foundation.  In order to enhance that recognition, we decided to name the honor for the person who has made an unmatched contribution to Denver Health.  During Wellington E. Webb’s term as mayor, he supplied the creativity, energy and “moxie” to ensure that Denver Health became an independent authority, which secured its ability to survive and continue to serve our community. 

We are honored to present the 2018 Wellington E. Webb Award for Outstanding Achievement in Healthcare Philanthropy to Michael Pollak.  Michael serves on the Board of Directors for Denver Health Foundation, and chaired the Foundation for 3 years.  He made fundamental improvements to the Board of Directors, and dramatically grew philanthropy during his tenure as chair.  He founded Diamonds in the Rough to support the efforts of youth based nonprofits and local charities in their quest to reach their goals.  He is an outstanding businessman (CEO of Hyde Park Jewelers) and a committed philanthropist.   His greatest passion is his family.  He is a community “jewel” and a Denver Health Star.
