Boston Celtics Will Honor Owners of Unparalleled Retreat in Caribbean
Deborah Bernstein and Scott Wahlen will receive a Heroes Among Us Award from the Boston Celtics on December 1, 2008 for their altruistic service.
Boston, November 30, 2008 – Deborah Bernstein and Scott Wahlen, owners of the Florian Villa, will receive one of the most coveted community service awards, the Heroes Among Us Award, from the Boston Celtics on December 1, 2008.
“It is truly an honor that we will cherish forever and we intend on sharing our award with every visitor to the Florian Villa,” stated Bernstein. Bernstein and Wahlen cannot believe that they were chosen for such a prestigious award for simply giving back to the community.
Bernstein and Wahlen provide weeklong, all-inclusive respites to families of fallen firefighters and returning wounded veterans at their exclusive Florian Villa on Saint John Island in the US Virgin Islands. Scott Wahlen, a captain with the Boston Fire Department and a former U.S. Marine, and Deborah Bernstein, a yoga instructor, founded the Florian Villa in 2007. Current residents of Boston, these two philanthropists routinely collaborate with other organizations, such as Soldiers Undertaking Disable Scuba (SUDS), to provide a well-rounded and supportive environment for the visiting families and veterans.
The Heroes Among Us program began in 1997 and has come to be recognized as one of the most prestigious community outreach programs in professional sports. A Heroes Among Us Award is presented at each Boston Celtics home game to individuals who have made tremendous impacts on the lives of others through their altruistic actions and contributions.
The Florian Villa was named after Saint Florian who is the patron saint of firefighters and their families. For additional information about the Florian Villa, visit http://www.FlorianVilla.com, http://florianyoga.blogspot.com or call (617) 429-6182.
