The Charleston Area Alliance will host its fifth annual We Love Our Community Awards program this Thursday, March 22. The event will recognize 12 recipients representing the best in the Kanawha Valley.
“This is another fantastic program and each year, the Alliance is excited to host an event that shines a spotlight on the best of Charleston,” said Susie Salisbury, the Alliance’s vice president of community development. “This is about the grace of our people, places and culture, and recognizing these recipients fits well with our mission –building a vibrant community and prosperous economy.”
The program includes awards for several categories, including Outstanding Preservation, Best Development, Best Re-Development, Community Celebration, Youth Volunteer and Servant Leader and the Kanawha Heritage award, among others.
Each winner will receive an award created by White Oak Photography and presented by outstanding local musical talents using personalized lyrics like this one:
She’s always giving and thinking of others
Supporting causes that she holds dear
No one works harder, no one works longer
Than Charleston’s super volunteer
