Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Salutes Six 'Angels'
Date:10/11/2007

DETROIT, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Six earthbound "angels" who have brightened the lives of Michigan children are being honored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

The Caring for Children Angel Awards recognize good works done by Michigan residents to improve children's lives. The awards have been sponsored annually by the Michigan Blues since 1999.

All six Angels will be honored at a Friday, Nov. 9 reception and awards program at the Blues' Bricktown Auditorium in Detroit. A "Grand Angel" chosen from among the six will be announced at the event.

Awards include a $5,000 contribution to the Grand Angel's designated nonprofit organization, as well as a $1,000 grant to each of the five other Angels' organizations, including the under-age-17 "Littlest Angel" winner. In addition to the donations, all six Angels will receive engraved gifts.

Following are this year's six Angel Award recipients, selected by a panel of judges who are past Angel Award recipients from across Michigan:

-- Joseph J. Bronz III of Saginaw Township is founder of the Saginaw County Down syndrome support group "Never Say Never," helping children with the syndrome realize their full potential. Bronz also is a court-appointed special advocate for the Child Abuse and Neglect Council of Saginaw County, specially trained to represent children in family court matters who are in foster care due to abuse or neglect.

-- Alice Hall Williams of Saginaw is pastor of the city's Trinity Lutheran Church. In 2006, she and several congregation members re-established the Trinity Center After-School Program, providing free activities for youth from the Houghton-Jones neighborhood three afternoons a week in the former church school. Up to 100 children take advantage of the program which includes free meals, sports, computer training, homework and reading assistance, health instruction and an emphasis on positive regard for others and self-discipline.
