A one-time volunteer, and later Board Chair of WQED, Elsie Hillman was involved in various WQED Events, including the WQED TV Auctions. Hillman would later be honored in 1996 with a tribute event called “For the Love of Elsie” which later laid the foundation for the Elsie Awards, a biennial award show named after Hillman herself.
