During the Celebrating Successes Brunch, attendees will hear from each of the finalists for the Hughes Investments ELEVATE UPSTATE Community Vibrancy Grants. After the presentations the recipients of two grants of $5,000 each will be announced. Additionally, Upstate companies and organizations celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2017 will be recognized in a special fashion and both The Welling Award for Regional Collaboration and The Burdette Leadership Award will be presented.
“The goal of the ELEVATE UPSTATE program is to get communities thinking about what types of initiatives or programs might help spark vibrancy within their area and then provide seed money to get some of them started,” said Hughes Investments President Phil Hughes. “In the four years we have done this program, I have been amazed by the great ideas and passion for communities across the region to grow their vibrancy and sense of place.”
