Giving Back Awards Voting

Coastal Virginia Magazine is pleased to present the third annual Giving Back Awards, sponsored by Old Point National Bank, honoring Coastal Virginia's outstanding non-profit organizations.

The "Giving Back Awards" aims to recognize the often unrecognized groups living among us who address the many needs of the community. The winners-as determined by reader votes-will be revealed at a special awards reception and profiled in our November/December 2014 issue.

Please mark your calendar for the following dates to ensure that your non-profit of choice makes it to the final round:

August 13 (8:00 AM) - August 19 (3:00 PM) - First voting round - 50 non-profits advance to the next voting round.
August 20 (8:00 AM) - August 26 (3:00 PM) - Second voting round - 25 non-profits move onto the semi-final round.
August 27 (8:00 AM) - September 2 (3:00 PM) - Final voting round - 15 non-profits will be anounced at the awards reception and online.

One vote per e-mail address per voting period please, but do encourage your volunteers, friends and family to vote to show support for their favorite Coastal Virginia non-profits.
