Vince Liuzzi spent 16 years as a branch manager, district manager, and regional president for Wells Fargo in regions throughout the United States. Now serving as EVP and Chief Bankong Officer for DNB First in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, Vince Liuzzi is an active supporter of nearby Philadelphia-area charities. In addition to his work with the Salvation Army and other philanthropic organizations, he has served on the board of directors for the Marian Anderson Awards.

Named for the Philadelphia singer, the Marian Anderson Awards honor critically acclaimed artists who have positively affected society in some way. Since 1998, the award has been granted to such well-known artists and actors as Gregory Peck, Quincy Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Sidney Poitier, Maya Angelou, and Oprah Winfrey.

The organization’s annual award gala raises funds to sponsor scholarships like the Young Artist Study Grant. This program is designed to provide assistance to high school-age artists who require financial aid to pursue their artistic visions.
