Kardong and Worthy's to be honored at DSP Annual Meeting Thursday

At the Annual Meeting to be held at the Centennial Hotel on February 28, the Downtown Spokane Partnership (DSP) and Business Improvement District (BID) will celebrate the 2019 recipients of the Downtown Legacy Award and Impact Award.

The Legacy Award is awarded to a company, organization, or individual who has left a mark on Spokane by creating positive and sustainable transformation in downtown over a long period of time.

2019 Legacy Award: Don Kardong, Founder and Race Director of the Lilac Bloomsday Run. Following 42 years at the helm, the 2019 race will mark Kardong's final race as director. What started as a "fun run" to capitalize on the rejuvenation of downtown for Expo 74 is now a part of the DNA that is the City of Spokane. The success of Bloomsday has put Spokane on the map as one of the top five largest timed races in the nation, and inspired multiple street festivals that take place in the heart of the city.

The Impact Award is awarded to a company, organization, or individual who has made an impact on the downtown core in recent years.

2019 Impact Award: Walt and Karen Worthy for the restoration of the Historic Davenport Hotel. Providing four star visitor experiences, spending the night in downtown, or hosting an event in the Grand Pennington Ballroom has revived Spokane's tourism industry and brought the world to downtown. The daunting project of returning the Davenport Hotel to its original magnificence was almost too overwhelming to be possible. Without the vision and determination of the Worthy's it's hard to imagine what downtown would look like today without this historic investment.
