Tony Pope named 2017 recipient of the Bert Cicenia Award
Tony Pope is the 2017 recipient of the Bert Cicenia Award. Each year, this award is presented at the Pinwheel Gala hosted by the Dorchester Children’s Center to an individual who has worked hard to improve the lives of children in Dorchester County. This year’s recipient, Tony Pope, is a true champion and advocate for children in our community. Pope is a Board Member of the Dorchester Children’s Center, a nationally accredited Child Advocacy Center serving abused and neglected children and their families. Pope also supports organizations who help children and adults with special needs such as the Summerville Miracle League, Beyond Basic Life Skills, and the former Carolina Autism Board of Directors. Pope is the owner of Tony Pope State Farm Insurance Agency and lives in Summerville with his son, Anthony.
The Dorchester Children’s Center established the Bert Cicenia Award in 2002 as a tribute to one of their founding Board Members, Dr. Erbert F. Cicenia. Dr. Cicenia also founded the Coastal Carolina Center for the mentally handicapped. This award celebrates the legacy of Dr. Cicenia and his faithful dedication to the children of the Lowcountry.
Dorchester Children’s Center was founded in 2003 to aid in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse and neglect victims. Over 11,000 children have been served since its inception, providing forensic interviews, forensic medical exams, and evidence based treatment for children affected by trauma.
“Tony is true inspiration as a committed leader, advocate, and parent and we are very fortunate to have his support and friendship” says Executive Director, Dr. Kay Phillips.
