Nominations are open for the 2021 Eagle Rare Life Award, the $50,000 annual recognition and charitable donation for an individual who finds ways to reach higher in fulfilling their American dream.
Individuals wishing to nominate someone can do so on the brand’s website at eaglerarelife.com/nominate until nominations close at 11:59 p.m. EST on Dec. 10, 2020.
Now in its 11th year, the Eagle Rare Life Award honors individuals whose efforts stand out as those who “live a rare life and reach higher” to achieve levels of excellence for themselves and their communities, the company says. Past winners include individuals who spearheaded efforts to fight childhood cancer, recognize fallen heroes of military service, lead environmental projects and create opportunities for those with disabilities.
The individual or individuals are honored with the award while a $50,000 donation is made to the charity of their choice by Eagle Rare Bourbon.
The 2020 Eagle Rare Life Award winners, Captain Daniel Andrews and Captain Chris Wittman, run Captains for Clean Water, an organization focused on uniting Florida communities to protect local waterways.
Unlike previous versions of the program, this year’s process will not include public voting. The winner will be chosen by a team of non-partisan stakeholders and announced in January 2021, the company says. The winner will be recognized on EagleRare.com, and through the brand’s social channels.
