Celebrate the Glades Community in Belle Glade
March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00
The second annual Glades Community Service Awards happens tonight, when more than a dozen categories of hardworking businesses, organizations and people in Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay will be celebrated–according to nominations made by people in the community. Those categories include Small Business of the Year, Greek Organization of the Year and, interestingly, DJ of the Year. Awardees must be residents of Belle Glade, Pahokee or South Bay. Early tickets are $25 and can be had here; at the door, $35. Meanwhile, the event host, Thrive For A Change of the Palm Beaches, can recognize itself next week–February 13 to be exact–for its hard work as a grassroots re-entry nonprofit for returning citizens that serves all of PBC. Including the Glades. This is year number six for ‘Thrive’ and its founder, Tyron Hanna, is himself a Belle Glade native. He’ll be at the big event tonight.
