2018 CHICO AWARD WINNER: THE GENTLE BARN
THE CHICO AWARD
Each year, the Tiny But Mighty Fund organizers recognize an outstanding individual who contributes to the welfare, brings awareness, assists in the prevention of animal cruelty, and/or raises funds for animals in our community with the Chico Award. This honoree is recognized with an award and an opportunity to donate $1,000 to an animal welfare/rights 501c3 organization of their choice.
We are pleased to announce that the honorees of the 2018 Chico Award are Ellie Laks and Jay Wiener of The Gentle Barn. The Gentle Barn rescues, rehabilitates and gives sanctuary to severely abused animals. The animals then teach kindness, compassion and confidence to others.
"We’re so grateful for the Tiny But Mighty fund for your contribution to support The Gentle Barn and more specifically our baby goat Lolli’s prosthetics so she can walk again. Receiving this award means a lot to us because it makes us feel seen by the Nashville community for the work we do for animals and children."
