|What's Right with the Region! Awards 2016|
Each year, FOCUS applauds the efforts of 20 individuals, organizations and/or initiatives that promote improvements in our community. The 19th Annual What's Right with the Region awards were held on May 12, 2016, with a sellout crowd of 500+ at Sheldon Concert Hall. Dan Gray of KTVI Fox 2/KPLR 11 served as master of ceremonies for this special evening celebrating successes in the region. Thank you to all our attendees, honorees, presenters and sponsors for making this possible!
