The second annual, invitation-only Blue Angels Awards, sponsored by premier jeweler Tiffany & Co., were held recently in the Savannah Room at the Four Seasons, where several Atlantans were recognized for their devotion to area philanthropic efforts.

This year’s recipients were Tom and Chris Glavine, Henry and Billye Aaron, Jack Sawyer, Louise Sams, Michelle “Buttercup” Davis, and Harold and Alana Shepherd. Gifts to local charities were made in their honor, with eight organizations in total receiving donations. Of the event, Henry Gonzalez, Tiffany’s senior director Atlanta, says, “We do this because we not only help our customers celebrate special moments and communicate special messages throughout the year with the Tiffany blue box, but with that same passion, we make it a practice to help our customers in their efforts to make our community, and the world, a better place to live.”
