Best Philanthropist 2017
Longtime civic leader and astute businessman Larry Anfin has been given the nickname “Mr. Main Street.” Anfin acts as chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives Inc., which produces the MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival. He also serves on the committees or boards of 21 different organizations in Fort Worth. It’s no wonder that Mayor Betsy Price named Feb. 16 as Larry Anfin Day at a ceremony earlier this year.
Most people know Jon Bonnell for his cooking prowess, but the Fort Worth chef is also heavily involved in the community. He seems to show up at just about everything, lending a hand to organizations like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Careity Foundation.
