While the festivities will be live streamed from Nonprofit First’s headquarters, they promise to be lively and entertaining. Special guest appearances, a best hat contest and the People’s Choice Award will all take place along with the live announcement of the winners.
“We are giving it our all to make this event special and memorable like it has been in the past, even though it’s virtual,” said Nonprofits First CEO Jessica Cecere. “It’s so important to recognize the people who are going the extra mile to serve our community.
This year’s sponsors include FPL and Valley Bank, and there are many sponsorship opportunities still available. Funds raised from the Hats Off Nonprofit Awards benefit Nonprofits First educational programs. These programs focus on professional development, leadership, and training that nonprofit community volunteers and employees need to lead and succeed.
“We are so grateful to our sponsors and everyone supporting this event,” said Natalie Alvarez, 2020 Hats Off Awards Event Chair. “People in the nonprofit sector work tirelessly, and this is an opportunity to make sure they know they are appreciated.
This year, the Hats Off to Heroes Award has been added to honor the extraordinary efforts of those who have to come to the rescue of people in our community during this difficult time. To see the full list of this year’s categories and nominees, visit nonprofitsfirst.org/page/hatsoffnominees.
