Joanna Caron Award

This prestigious award is presented in memory of Joanna Caron, who, along with our friend Tommi Rose, was instrumental in developing the TGSF Cotillion. Joanna was the producer of many of her own pageants, and had received so many trophies that she often complained that they were too hard to dust—except for the silver platters.

Joanna passed away in 1989, at the age of 37. Each year since then, a silver platter has been awarded to recognize the one person who has given the most energy, time and effort to the Cotillion.
