Our annual Community Awards honor individuals and organizations creating positive change in the lives of people with disabilities.

Award recipients are invited as guests to our Celebration of Champions, an evening to benefit Starbridge. Each recipient is introduced, recognized for his or her contributions and accomplishments, and presented with an engraved award.

The 2017 Celebration of Champions will be held Saturday, May 13, 2017, at the Holiday Inn Rochester Downtown. Join us!
