On October 21st, 2014, the Permanent Endowment presented Steve Ewing with the Creative Living Award at an event held at The Grange Hall in West Tisbury.

A standing room only crowd, serenaded by the sounds of bagpipes, packed the Grange Hall on a rainy Thursday night to honor Edgartown poet laureate Steve Ewing with the Creative Living Award.

The evening also included a drawing for guests to win the opportunity to award $1,000 to Island nonprofits. This drawing was made possible by the eleven members of the Permanent Endowment Board who donated $1,000 to demonstrate their commitment to fostering philanthropy on the Vineyard. The winner of the drawing was Roberta Kirn, who directed the funds to two Island nonprofits.
