NOTE: The deadline for nominations to be included in the 2019 celebration has now passed.
Since 2001, the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys has been hosting the annual Unsung Heroes event to recognize the tireless efforts of our community’s volunteers. Each Monroe County 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is invited to nominate one Unsung Hero to recognize that individual’s unpaid contributions over the past year. Each Unsung Hero will be presented with a certificate of appreciation at our celebratory luncheon on January 25th. Special thanks to our event sponsor, the Lower Keys Medical Center.
The nomination deadline was December 15, 2018. Only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located in Monroe County were eligible to participate.This event SELLS OUT every year.
The 2018 Unsung Heroes luncheon celebrated the strength of our nonprofit community by recognizing our nonprofits as the year’s Unsung Heroes. Our nonprofit partners worked overtime to help our community get back to normal following Hurricane Irma. There were so many unsung heroes who helped that we wanted to celebrate the nonprofits that worked so hard to bring back the heart and soul of our community.
