Join Walton Options for Independent Living as we honor those who have worked towards an inclusive community at the MVP Community Awards Celebration Luncheon on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at the Legends Club on Washington Rd from 10:30-12:30.
During the Celebration Luncheon, all the finalists will be recognized and the 2017 MVP Awards Winners will be announced. Our Celebration will be hosted by Barclay Bishop of WJBF with special Guest Speaker Jeff Eiseman, the President of Agon Sports & Entertainment (Augusta GreenJackets).
The MVP Community Awards give you the opportunity to meet & mingle with individuals and organizations making an impact in the community.
The Most Valuable Partner (MVP) Community Awards highlight those in the CSRA who have worked with and for persons with disabilities and the finalists were nominated by the community itself. The public was able to nominate any organization, business, government official, action group or individual they felt met the standards of an award category.

About the MVP Community Awards
The MVP Community Awards were created by Walton Options following the success of the Americans with Disabilities Act 25th Anniversary celebration in May 2015. Local businesses and persons who have embodied the spirit of the titles of the ADA were honored during the course of a week-long celebration. Walton Options wanted to keep these honors alive and expand them through an annual awards that is open to the entire CSRA community.
