Andy Tecson to receive Seeds of Hope Award
Chuhak & Tecson president Andy Tecson has been selected as a 2012 Seeds of Hope Award recipient.
The award recognizes individuals who have dedicated themselves to serving others through health, hope and healing. It is distributed by Wheat Ridge Ministries, a not-for-profit organization that helps fund health and human care initiatives. Tecson, an accomplished jazz musician, will receive the award at a benefit dinner on March 3.
“The Seeds of Hope Award is presented each year to individuals who are models of Christian service,” said Dr. Richard Herman, president of Wheat Ridge Ministries. “Andy has used his gifts and talents in so many ways to God’s glory; using his legal skills to assist people in need and his musical ability to praise and worship God.”
Community service is an integral part of life for Tecson, who concentrates his legal practice in healthcare and corporate work. Tecson plays tenor and soprano sax with the band ChurchJazz, and also composes most of the group’s music. ChurchJazz regularly performs at churches throughout the nation—often as part of a fundraising initiative for various foundations and not-for-profit organizations. Tecson also has served as a member of the board of directors of 10 not-for-profit charitable organizations.
“I am truly honored to have been selected as a Seeds of Hope award recipient,” Tecson said. “The award serves as a reminder of the health, hope and healing we can bring to others by dedicating ourselves to serving in Christ’s name.”
The Seeds of Hope Award has been given to 115 individuals since its creation in 1994. All proceeds from this year’s benefit dinner will go to the Joshua Grant Program, which provides funding to Lutheran-affiliated congregations across Chicagoland. For more information, please visit wheatridge.org.
