Bill Wilcox Bow Tie Celebration & Fundraiser
The Bill Wilcox Bow Tie Award, established in 2013, is presented to a local individual each year at the Bow Tie Celebration and Fundraiser, typically held in early November. In addition to honoring deserving local volunteers, Bow Tie is ADFAC’s signature event that raises funds to support the agency.
The Bow Tie Award is named after the late Bill Wilcox, an ADFAC volunteer and supporter. In addition to his impressive career at Y-12 and K-25, Bill was the Oak Ridge City Historian, active in numerous nonprofits, and thoroughly connected to his community.
When selecting a winner each year, the Bow Tie Committee looks for individuals with similar values and community-minded activities.
