Lorrie Browne Named First Nominee for Wellington The Magazine’s Volunteer of the Year Award

Written by: Emily Riden
Client: Lorrie Browne Interiors
Release Date: 2013-01-10

Wellington, FL – January 10, 2013 – When not designing spectacular living spaces for Wellington clients, Lorrie Browne, founder of Lorrie Browne Interiors, gives her heart, soul and time to Big Dog Ranch Rescue (BDRR). 

Browne oversees BDRR ’s website, finds new homes for rescues and helps to save the lives of numerous dogs. With countless hours dedicated to volunteering over the past several years, it’s no surprise that Browne caught the attention of Wellington The Magazine, which named her the first nominee for their Volunteer of the Year Award.       

“As a kid I was always rescuing young rabbits, squirrels and birds, but I’ve always felt a special kinship with dogs,” Browne said.

After adopting her Weimaraner, Roxie, from BDRR three years ago, Browne was drawn to the organization. She felt certain that she could help make a difference in the lives of the BDRR dogs.

“I started by leading a fundraiser at Panther Run Elementary,” Browne explained. “Since then, I have volunteered endless hands-on hours at the Ranch, as well as spending time online each night.”

Volunteers like Browne are vital to the success of the Ranch, a private nonprofit that depends solely on donations and community support to stay alive. Each year BDRR saves more than 1,000 dogs.  BDRR provides each and every dog with a thorough examination, expert care and medical attention before placement in a loving home.

“To be an effective volunteer, I think we need to remain open-minded,” Browne said. “Be genuine, honor your commitments, be willing to learn.”

Long hours of volunteering often go without recognition, which is why Wellington The Magazine is pleased to bring dedicated and selfless members of the community, like Browne, to the forefront throughout 2013.

Over the course of the year, the magazine will nominate one person a month and feature them in that month’s issue, before opening voting for the official award winner in January 2013, Dawn Rivera, publisher of Wellington The Magazine, explained.

“Each year we do a series in the magazine,” Rivera said. “One year it was entrepreneur of the year, one year it was equestrian of the year and one year it was woman of the year,” Rivera explained. “This year it’s volunteer of the year.”
