About the 11Alive Community Service Awards
Each year for the last 38 years, the 11Alive Community Service Awards (CSA) has honored 11 Who Care, outstanding local volunteers who have demonstrated selfless devotion for the betterment of the community.

We would be honored to have you join us at the CSA dinner on April 22, 2014 to celebrate the achievements of these remarkable community volunteers. 11Alive News Anchor Brenda Wood will host the prime time videotaping which will air on WXIA-TV, 11Alive and WATL-TV, theAtl.

Each year the Community Service Awards dinner proceeds benefit a selected charity. This year, the dinner proceeds will benefit Ron Clark Academy.

You can help us recognize the outstanding service of the 11Alive Community Service Awards recipients and support the important work of MSCA by participating as a table sponsor.

In honor of the 39th anniversary of the 11Alive Community Service Awards, there are two levels of support. Sponsor a Host Table for $3,000 or a Silver Host Table for $6,000. While both table sponsorships entitle you to a table for ten guests, the Silver Host Table includes prominent placement in the ballroom.

This will be a wonderful event, if you are with us, as we salute the incredible contributions that the 11Alive Community Service Awards recipients have made to improve the communities in which we live and work.

For additional information or reservations, please contact Amy Holloway at aholloway@wxia.gannett.com or 404.885.7610.
