The award was established in 2000 in memory of Susan Bowes, who was instrumental in helping the Tour Wives Association establish and improve its fundraising activities.
Nobilo, whose husband Frank won the 1997 Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic, was recognized for her continued support and efforts to arrange charity visits for the wives at different tournament sites throughout the year.
Selena Nobilo works closely with the tournaments to organize the visits. She has been instrumental in getting the wives involved in everything from reading and playing with children at different centers and children's homes, to cooking and serving lunches at homeless shelters and soup kitchens across the country.
Nobilo joins Cathi Triplett (2001) and Sara Moores (2002) as winners of this award.
