On Nov. 4, Coastal Virginia Magazine honored our annual Giving Back and Community Impact Awards winners, celebrating area nonprofits and businesses that make a difference in our community, at a special reception at Virginia MOCA in Virginia Beach.

For our 2020 awards, we made the process more selective than in previous years, narrowing down winning organizations to just 10 in each category. We also selected a single top honoree for Nonprofit of the Year, Norfolk-based Survivor Ventures. Our staff was particularly moved by Survivor Ventures’ unique approach to helping victims of human trafficking.

Guests enjoyed a delicious spread of foods from The Twisted Fork, along with drinks from our wine sponsor Sonoma-Cutrer, before heading into the museum’s theater for a socially distanced awards presentation recognizing the Giving Back and Community Impact Awards winners.

Special thanks to our Giving Back Awards sponsor Old Point National Bank for their support of this event and the organizations it honors.
