Cheers To Volunteers! – Leo Handzlik

If your to-do list includes coordinating the set-up, the volunteers and the electricity for a big event, in addition to managing the behind-the-scenes operations, that makes you head of logistics. If you’re doing all that for Stems: A Garden Soirée at The Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, you’re Leo Handzlik. If you’re Leo, your efficient planning and hard work are greatly appreciated by The Arts & Recreation Foundation of Overland Park: Congratulations to the 2017 Volunteer of the Year!
