Awards are given to out-standing African Americans who set an inspirational ex-ample through community involvement and leadership in four categories: Arts & Culture; Business & Entrepreneurism; Community Service; and Education. In honor of the achievers, JM Family, Southeast Toyota and JM Lexus will donate $40,000 to various South Florida charities – $10,000 in each achiever’s name to the charity or charities of his/her choice.
The companies will also donate $500 to the charity(ies) of choice for those whose nominee is selected as an African-American Achiever, for an additional total contribution of $2,000 to local nonprofits. Each person whose nominee is chosen will receive an invitation to attend the evening’s private reception.
