Submissions are closed.
  • Back this year - recognize those who have gone above and beyond for your organization with a heartfelt thank you by naming them a Distinguished Honoree.  Your honoree may be an individual, couple or an organization, and may be represented by an individual or group.  Each honoree will receive a special celebration package, spotlight on WGRZ Channel 2, exclusive invitation to a virtual Happy Hour and more!
