Giving Back Awards Reception 2017

by | Nov 3, 2017

On Nov. 2, Coastal Virginia Magazine honored nonprofit organizations featured in the 6th Annual Giving Back Awards and businesses featured in CoVa Biz’s Community Impact Awards at a special reception at Virginia MOCA in Virginia Beach.

Guests posed for photos in front of a green screen provided by Premier Events, enjoyed a selection of Southern-style culinary eats from Sweetwater Cuisine, drinks and cupcakes from Sweet Haven Baked Goods, a bakery whose proceeds directly benefit Help And Emergency Response, Inc. (H.E.R.) Shelter. Attendees then headed into the museum’s theater for an awards presentation recognizing nonprofit organizations making a difference and businesses that give back to the community. H.E.R. Shelter was named this year’s Giving Back Awards’ number one nonprofit.

Proceeds gathered from drink donations during the evening will benefit H.E.R. Shelter. A special thanks to our sponsors, Old Point National Bank, Howard Hanna and Premier Events. Congratulations to all of our winning nonprofits giving back and businesses making an impact in the community!
