Join us in celebrating our 8th Annual Hero Award Honoree, Mark Chilutti, VP of Development at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, and our first ever Outstanding Advocate Award recipient, Susan Tachau.

Mark Chilutti has raised over $35 million to improve the quality of life of individuals with disabilities during his 20+ year career at Magee Rehab Hospital in Philadelphia. His specialties are major and planned giving, and finding creative ways to help donors make an impact at this 83 bed specialty hospital.

He became a CFRE in 2006 and has recertified every 3 years since then. Mark is a distinguished public speaker and a frequent presenter for his local AFP Chapter, at AFP ICON and Spotlight Sessions, and AFP Global webinars. He became an Eagle Scout at the age of 14 and is still a top volunteer on all levels with the Boy Scouts of America. He is also a former wheelchair tennis player living with a spinal cord injury since 1996.

Co-Chairs: Craig and Lauren Evans

Join Us

AWB relies on volunteers.

The first Sunday of every month volunteers assist our actors at workshops as they learn their lines and rehearse their parts. Our most dedicated volunteers support our actors throughout the year and are a part of the yearly performance. There are opportunities for people who want a creative outlet through set design, props and costume development. Great for early teens, adults and seniors!
