The Honourable Edward W. Ducharme Award of Distinction

Sutts, Strosberg LLP, Shibley Righton LLP and United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County chose to honour the late Honourable Justice Edward W. Ducharme with the gracious permission of his beloved family. Justice Ducharme was an academic, an educator, a lover of poetry and the law. Justice Ducharme respected and valued his colleagues in the bench, the lawyers at bar and the public that he served. He was motivated by a deep sense of commitment to the public interest and to the public good. Together, we are pleased to present this posthumous award to a respected and honoured colleague and friend.

All proceeds from this event will be directed to United Way's Summer Lunch Program. The program aims to ensure children living in low-income neighbourhoods and relying on school nutrition programs can have access to a healthy lunch that is not available during the summer months.

This award recognizes a member of the Windsor-Essex community who demonstrates a culture of service and one who gives back in meaningful ways to others, to his/her community, or to their profession. The efforts of this award recipient will have had a positive and lasting impact.
