MulvannyG2 Chairman Jerry Lee was awarded the Spirit of America award by the Chinese American Citizens Alliance (C.A.C.A.), one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations, on Aug. 10. The award was presented to Lee at the C.A.C.A.’s Gala Dinner and Grand Ball in Oakland, Calif. as part of the Alliance’s 52nd Biennial National Convention.
First awarded in 2003, the Alliance created the award to recognize “Americans who embody the indomitable spirit of our great nation, who have demonstrated superior leadership, and whose achievements have made a national impact on all Americans. Recipients are role models for youth, beacons of pride, and are an inspiration for all Americans.”
Lee was specifically honored for being “a committed volunteer, a generous philanthropist, and a community leader who has dedicated his architectural skills and values to the advancement of community goals.”
Lee started MulvannyG2’s signature charitable effort, Swing for the Cure, which has raised more than $1 million over 11 years for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Puget Sound, to battle breast cancer. His volunteerism also includes serving as a Trustee on the Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation Board and membership in the hospital’s “Circle of Care,” as well as serving on multiple other community boards.
