BBB Torch Awards moved to fallWritten by Emily Gibb | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) Torch Awards, which usually take place in the spring, will be moved to sometime in the fall this year.
An exact date is not set, but will most likely be during October, said Marilyn Levine, BBB foundation director. The event will include speakers and entertainment, as well as the awards.
It is the 10th anniversary of the Torch Awards, which recognize businesses and charities for exemplary and ethical business practices.
Business and nonprofit organizations of any size may be nominated for an award.
In honor of the 10th anniversary, the BBB will also award scholarships to high school seniors.
Those who wish to nominate a business can call the BBB to be sent or faxed a form, or they can find one on the website, toledo.bbb.org.
BBB accredited businesses should receive a form in the newsletter.
Nominations can be submitted online, mailed to BBB Foundation, 7668 Kings Pointe Road, Toledo, OH 43617 or faxed to (419) 578-6001.
Self-nominations are encouraged.
“If you’re running a business and you know you’re doing a good job, go ahead and nominate yourself,” Levine said.
Those who send entries before April 1 are eligible to win a variety of prizes, such as various gift cards, she said.
“It’s a prestigious event. The businesses that win the Torch Awards feel very honored and it’s a real feather in their cap,” Levine said.
