The Temple Do Gooder Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Charles and Sharon Riser, owners of The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School were recognized at the 2017 DoGood-er Awards as the year’s Business DoGood-ers.

The event seeks to recognize businesses, individuals or advocates who serve their communities and the people in it, by giving back in small to big ways. The event honored 14 DoGood-ers from the Frederick Community that were nominated and vetted by members of their community for their service.

“We are truly humbled and honored to have this distinction bestowed upon us,” said Sharon Riser, co-owner. “We’ve always believed in giving back to the community we live in and the staff and Future Professionals at The Temple are huge advocates of this as well. We are thrilled to be recognized in such good company.”

Caressa Flannery, founder of the event states, “Studies show that doing good and giving back in your community puts the focus on others and helps foster positive mental health. The DoGood-er Awards seek to recognize those in our community who selflessly give back to others individually, or through charitable organizations.”

Proceeds from the DoGood-er Awards event also helped support two local non-profit organizations – Blessings in a Backpack, an organization that helps fight childhood hunger on the weekends and the Up & Out Foundation, a group that assists in supporting those in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction with resources and assistance through their journey.
