NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Mayor Patrick Hays and the City of North Little Rock will recognize the Honoree Harold Tenenbaum for his philanthropic contributions to Central Arkansas at the 2011 Argenta Arts Foundation Award Reception. The sold-out event is Wednesday, March 2.

Harold Tenenbaum is the Chairman of the A. Tenenbaum Company, Inc., which was founded by Harold’s great uncle in 1890 and is Arkansas’ largest recycler and processor of scrap metal. Harold became President of the Company in 1986.  The Tenenbaum Family has long been known for their philanthropy. They believe strongly that their charitable resources should be focused in the Central Arkansas area. The family's philosophy is that helping the local community should be their primary objective because the greater Little Rock/North Little Rock communities have enabled the Tenenbaum business to survive and flourish.

Many individuals and organizations in Central Arkansas have benefited greatly by Harold’s and the Tenenbaum Foundation’s generosity. More recently Harold has focused his efforts on the redevelopment of the downtown North Little Rock neighborhood of Argenta. Harold is a founding Board member of both the Argenta Downtown Council and the Argenta Arts Foundation. His leadership has shaped Argenta into a destination for arts organizations, art galleries, restaurants and artists.

The event will include a 6:00 PM Reception will be held in the White Tent across from the Argenta Community Theatre, full bar and plenty of great food and the music of Gentlemen Jazz and at 7:00 PM Move to the Argenta Community Theatre at 405 Main Street for the Program and Entertainment.
