In honor of the late Joanie Reinhard, who spent more than 40 years in Charlotte County volunteering for many causes and organizations, including the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, the inaugural Joanie Award Spirit of Volunteerism ceremony took place in the theater at the Cultural Center, which sponsored the event Friday, which is Reinhard’s birthday. The award that is named in her honor was created to honor other volunteers in Charlotte County.
