24th Annual Awards Breakfast

The Downtown Henderson Partnership is now accepting nominations for its annual awards to be presented at the 24th Annual Awards Breakfast on March 22, 2018.

Awards include Excellence in Preservation, Business of the Year, Downtowner of the Year, Volunteer or the Year, and the Heart of Downtown, presented annually to an individual or family who has worked diligently and successfully over a number of years for the long-term growth and development of downtown Henderson.

Beginning at 7:30 and lasting until 9 a.m. at Rookies Banquet Center, attendees will enjoy a keynote address by Missy Vanderpool (Association Executive for Henderson Audubon Board of Realtors) Abby Dixon (Executive Director, Henderson County Tourist Commission) and Brad Staton (Henderson City Commissioner). They have all played key roles in creating downtown Henderson’s new pocket park, The Perch. They will be presenting this history of the project and how the park will transform a public space into a vibrant community place.

“Our annual awards breakfast gives us an opportunity to recognize the success and progress of our downtown the past year and honoring those who made it possible,” said Jennifer Drennan, chairwoman of the Downtown Henderson Partnership board of directors. “We are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying those worthy of recognition, by nominating a person(s) or business for one of the available awards. We look forward to this year’s celebration.”

Award nominations are due to the Downtown Henderson Partnership by Monday, March 5. Individual tickets are available for $15 each and corporate table sponsorships are available for $500 each. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting the Downtown Henderson Partnership at 270-827-1600.
