Linda Hough, CPA and partner at CLH, CPAs & Consultants, is being recognized for her longtime service to Dunebrook, the child abuse prevention and child advocacy center. Hough is to receive the Lester Radke Community Service Award at the organization’s fundraising event, Dunebrook on Broadway, on May 17. Over the years, Hough has offered her time and talents by serving as President and Treasurer for Dunebrook.

“This award touches me where no others have,” Hough remarked. “Les Radke was the sole reason I became involved in charitable organizations many years ago.” She continued, “Les tirelessly fought for the disadvantaged individuals in our community.”

Jeanne Cannon, Executive Director of Dunebrook, affirmed the decision, saying, “Linda was the unanimous choice of the board to receive this momentous award.” Cannon added, “Linda is an inspiration to us all. We so appreciate her time, talent, and tremendous commitment to our cause and Dunebrook.”

Hough’s impact extends to CLH, CPAs & Consultants as well. Tony Gillisse, CPA, partner at CLH, and current Treasurer of Dunebrook acknowledged the influence of Hough’s community service, commenting, “We are thrilled for Linda to receive this notable award. While our firm has a long history of investment in non-profit organizations, Linda’s personal passion for Dunebrook has encouraged other members of our staff to become more involved in community service as well.”
