February 2 was a day to honor the volunteers and nonprofit organizations that make the communities of the Florida Keys the special place they are.
Whether it’s animal welfare, insurance price protection, at-risk kids or environmental stewardship, there’s an organization dedicated to it in the island chain.
The Community Foundation of the Florida Keys generously honors volunteers nominated by local nonprofits with a lunch and award ceremony at the Key West Marriott Beachside Resort.
The packed event featured bloody Marys, mimosas and a cash bar, along with photo opportunities and plenty of networking.
More than 100 nonprofits throughout the Keys nominated one of their crucial volunteers for the title of Unsung Hero.
