Architect Lee receives Spirit of America Award
Mercer Island resident, Jerry Lee, the chairman of MulvannyG2, was awarded the Spirit of America award by the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations. The award was presented to Lee on Aug. 10 in Oakland, Calif., as part of the Alliance’s 52nd Biennial National Convention.
Lee was specifically honored for being “a committed volunteer, a generous philanthropist, and a community leader who has dedicated his architectural skills and values to the advancement of community goals.”
Lee started MulvannyG2’s signature charitable effort, Swing for the Cure, which has raised more than $1 million over 11 years for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Puget Sound, to battle breast cancer. He has also served as a trustee on the Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation Board and as a member in the hospital’s “Circle of Care.” He serves on the boards of the College Success Foundation, the Martinez Foundation, the Bellevue Arts Museum and the Seattle School District’s “Cities and Schools” and “Seahawks Academy” programs, for at-risk kids.
Lee also supports Kin On Community Health Care and Nikkei Concerns, both elderly care facilities serving the Pacific Northwest. He also received the Community Service Award from the Seattle chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2006.
