The Walton Award
The George & Dorothy Walton award is presented annually to an Augusta-area couple who exemplifies the legacy and values of George and Dorothy Walton. The award recognizes a lifestyle of community service, selflessness, hospitality, courage, and devotion.
The winning couple invited to choose a 501(c)(3) organization based in the CSRA to receive a substantial monetary donation given in their honor.
George & Dorothy Walton were a couple of the American Revolution whose relentless efforts and generous service left a lasting mark on the state of Georgia and the Central Savannah River Region.
They were life-long public servants who humbly served their community, seeking no recognition or praise.
Presented annually, this award honors a couple who exemplifies the legacy and values of George & Dorothy Walton.
