Cliff Clark, Discovery Point Founder and CEO, presented with the 2020 Legacy Award

The Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation held its 12th annual Cornerstone Society Gala on Saturday, February 15, 2020. During the event, Cliff Clark, Discovery Point’s Founder and CEO, was presented with the Foundation’s 2020 Legacy Award.

Clark, a GMC Foundation board member, received the Legacy Award as a tribute to his leadership, time and resources to create a lasting impact on patients and their families.

Jason Chandler, president of the GMC Foundation, said Clark has made a commitment to education in Gwinnett County and at Northside Hospital Gwinnett through the launch of the hospital’s Sports Medicine & Concussion Care-a-Van two years ago. He has also supported the hospital’s patient simulation center in memory of his late wife, Diane.

“When I think of Cliff Clark, I think of intent and purpose,” Paige Havens, vice chair of the GMC Foundation, said. “When we first started talking with Cliff about our vision for the Concussion Care-a-Van, he caught it right away and he really had an excitement because he saw that we had an opportunity to do something first.”

The event’s theme was “Masquerade,” so there were plenty of masks, tuxedos and long, flowing dresses as the foundation celebrated its 30th year since its founding.

The event took place at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth and celebrated both individuals and organizations which support the foundation through donations of $1,000 or more.
