VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: October 2017
Equitas Health - Masquerage
Brenden Wynn LIVES UNITED by ”interacting with people with openness and respect” as he acts as chairman for this year’s Masquerage, benefitting Equitas Health. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Brenden as our Community Volunteer of the Month.
Brenden grew up in the Dayton area and “bounced around” before returning here thirteen years ago. He is employed at Premier Physician Network. He came on board volunteering with Equitas (when it was still ARC), wanting to help “debunk myths and stigma around HIV,” and has advocated for LGCTQ issues for 5 years and has been on the associate board for Equitas for years. As chair for this year’s Masquerage event he came upon this year’s theme (“Lost World”) wondering “how could be do ‘Under the Sea’ without prom?” While dealing a little every day with caterers and arrangements for the big night (taking roughly five hours a week), he tries to “keep it simple, wanting people to enjoy the fantasy!” He has always volunteered, going back to extracurricular activities in school. “I want to make a difference” he says, and inspires others with a “plea to understand the importance of the cause.” He also is involved with TedXDayton, Equitas board activities and time with friends.
Equitas’s Wanda Willis says of Brenden: “Brenden Wynn has long been committed to fighting the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS and improving the quality of healthcare in the LGBTQ community. We are grateful that he decided to bring his passion and dedication to Equitas Health (formerly AIDS Resource Center Ohio) by joining our Dayton Associate Board. As chairperson of 2017 Masquerage, Brenden has worked tirelessly to create an event that lives up to its hype – Dayton’s Party of Parties!”
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Brenden Wynn as our Community Volunteer of the Month for October, 2017.
