Noting that philanthropy does not only involve giving money, but also giving time, the Door County Community Foundation named Father Anthony Birdsall the 2014 Philanthropist of the Year.
Father Tony retired in 2008, but is still active on an almost daily basis in parishes up and down the Peninsula. The 79-year-old Father is still a playground and lunchroom monitor at St. John Bosco school.
The award was presented yesterday at the Door County Community Foundation’s annual Celebration of Giving luncheon.
