7/26/2018, 6 a.m.
My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond is accepting nominations for the 2018 Manny Awards honoring unsung heroes in the region who are making their communities better.
The organization plans to honor 15 men at the dinner event to be held 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Richmond, 2925 Emerywood Parkway.
“We have an amazing group of men who have inspiring stories of hard work and perseverance. They are tremendous assets to their communities and we want to give them the public recognition that they normally would not get,” said Stephan “Coach” Hicks, founder and executive director of the organization.
Several men already have been chosen as honorees, organizers said. They are Floyd E. Miller II, executive director of the Metropolitan Business League; Matthew Ruland, career coach with YouthBuild in Petersburg; Cory Hancock, executive director and co-founder of Legacy Chess Academy; and Darryl Williams, family and community engagement coordinator for Henrico County Public Schools.
To nominate someone, contact Coach Hicks and Monica Haynes at (412) 587-1254 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
