“A Night of Unity” will honor Ron Shapiro, long-time champion of both PeacePlayers and MENTOR. As Chairman Emeritus of PeacePlayers’ Board of Directors and a strategic partner and investor in MENTOR, Ron has helped shape and propel both organizations’ visions and unlocked tremendous support and investment to drive relationships and unity through sport and beyond. He is also a respected leader in the world of sports and entertainment as a former agent, consultant to franchises, negotiations expert, and master mentor to many. Because of Ron’s lifelong servant leadership and commitment to expanding opportunities for youth, we are thrilled to honor him with the inaugural Unity Award.
