Community Spirit Awards

Each year for the past 9 years through our Community Spirit Awards, we have highlighted and celebrated individuals and organizations doing important community work.  Conjointly over the past two years we have hosted our Empowered Communities Conference in which we have connected residents and those from various sectors together with local experts teaching and informing on relevant issues facing our communities.  Our goal with both these events has been to uplift the needs of the community in order to achieve equitable and sustainable outcomes for all.  Although in 2018 LINC will not be hosting the Empowered Communities Conference, our goal will remain the same.

This year's event is all of about community!  Come celebrate all of our nominee's with us on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm at The Wealthy Theatre. Click here to reserve your seat today.
