Limelight Board Member Lorna MacDonald awarded 2017 Gus Craig Award


Limelight Board Member Lorna MacDonald, who is the owner of Raintree Restaurant in St. Augustin, has been awarded the 20th Annual Gus Craig Award by the Salvation Army of St. Augustine.

MacDonald is a community volunteer and philanthropist, serving as former president and on the board of EPIC Behavioral Healthcare; as founding president of the St. Augustine Independent Restaurant Association (SAIRA); and on the Board of Directors at Limelight Theatre, St. Augustine's community theatre. She provides cuisine for the Limelight Gala and for a special opening night event for each new Limelight season.

The Salvation Army introduced the Gus Craig Award in 1998. The award recognizes longtime residents who have contributed to the community and upheld the ideas and morals of the Salvation Army.

Before his passing in 2008, A.H. "Gus" Craig, Jr., past owner of Craig Funeral Home, was a passionate supporter of many local causes and organizations. In the early 1990s, to honor Gus Jr., the Salvation Army created the Gus Craig Award to recognize longtime residents of the community that give selflessly to others.
