The 28th annual African-American Achievers awards ceremony will recognize four inspirational African-Americans from the South Florida community.
Awards will be given to outstanding African-Americans who set an inspirational example through community involvement and leadership in four categories: Arts & Culture; Business & Entrepreneurism; Community Service; and Education.
In honor of the achievers, JM Family, Southeast Toyota Distributors, and JM Lexus will donate $10,000 in each achiever’s name to the charity or charities of his/her choice.
The companies will also donate $500 to the charity or charities of choice for those whose nominee is selected as an African-American Achiever, for a total campaign contribution of $42,000 to local nonprofits. Each person whose nominee is chosen will receive an invitation to attend the evening’s private reception.
