This week, we recognize one of the desert community’s best friends and biggest champions, David Powell, CEO of Desert Business Association.
The City of Palm Springs’ Human Rights Commission (PSHRC) will honor David for his service leadership to our community tonight at 5:30PM. From the PSHRC’s press release:
“David Powell is recognized for his volunteerism and work to enhance the Palm Springs community experience. He is a behind-the-scenes volunteer that serves as the backbone of many organizations in Palm Springs. He volunteers at dozens of events and serves on numerous civic committees that impact the quality of life for others. He is the first to roll up his sleeves and volunteer while encouraging others to be involved and engage in community service.
