A graduate of Texas Wesleyan University, Nadia Cavner spent over two decades as an investment advisor. Today, Nadia Cavner gives back to others through her work as a philanthropist who supports a number of charitable causes. Among other initiatives, she recently supported Project Connect OMC.
A joint effort of community groups, local businesses, churches, and charitable individuals, Project Connect OMC brought together people from throughout the Ozarks region on August 25, 2018, for a day of free carnival-style activities and community assistance. Held in Branson at the Mansion Theater and the Shrine of the Holy Spirit, the event raised awareness about community services for area residents who may not have access to them.
More than 140 service providers turned out to help with the event. In addition, nearly 300 volunteers guided participants among information booths staffed by representatives of community organizations and service providers. In addition to those providing information, other volunteers offered services such as free haircuts, medical screenings, and family photographs.
