Join Spoleto as we present The Mary Ramsay Civic Award, in memory of Mary Croghan Ramsay, celebrating local philanthropic and public leaders who have made extraordinary contributions in the community. In presenting this award, Spoleto’s commitment goes beyond concert halls and theaters to serve as a catalyst for cultural change through education and community engagement initiatives. The award celebrates Mary’s enduring work to promote the many causes that were dear to her heart, including the performing arts, urban development, higher education, and the welfare of people with disabilities. We invite you to join us in honoring Kit & Joel Smith and Dr. Mary Thornley as the 2024 recipients of The Mary Ramsay Civic Award.
