 “The Annual Awards Luncheon is a wonderful way to recognize the accomplishments of businesses and professionals within our community”, stated Teresa Rand, Volusia Flagler Family YMCA, and 2016 Chair of the Board. “We anticipate a sell-out event again this year as we celebrate the positive impacts that these businesses have had in the area.”
