The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute is awarded to an outstanding person, persons or community organization who has made a significant difference and positive impact on the Winona region and/or Winona Health.

Winona Health will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2019, and The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute is now in its 31st year. The Tribute was established by the late community philanthropist, Benjamin A. Miller, in the name of his wife, Adith.
In addition to a special recognition dinner at Cedar Valley Restaurant, the family of Ben and Adith Miller and RTP Company honors the recipient with a $25,000 contribution to the Ben & Adith Miller Patient Care Fund to assist area individuals and families.
