The Chattanooga History Center will honor the legacy of Mose and Garrison Siskin with its seventh annual History Makers Award, to be presented at a luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

The award recognizes local individuals or groups who have made significant contributions to Chattanooga, the region, the state or the country. The 2012 award recognizes the far-reaching impact the work and philanthropy of the Siskin brothers have had on the Chattanooga area through Siskin Hospital and the Siskin Children's Institute.

The award, an original sculpture by Cessna Decosimo, will be presented during the luncheon, scheduled 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center, 1 Carter Plaza. Mose and Garrison Siskin's children -- Claire Siskin Binder, Anita Siskin Levine, Helen Siskin Pregulman and Robert H. Siskin -- will accept the award.

The History Makers Luncheon is the History Center's major fundraiser of the year. Tickets are $60; table sponsorships are also available. For reservations, call 265-3247.
