The most wonderful time of the year is here!
I hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was full of the warmth of family and friends and you’re feeling as grateful as I am as we head into the final month of what has been a stellar year for our region.
One of the exciting events for us this time of year is announcing our signature Jerry Award winners. As you know, these awards are bestowed to one public and one private sector recipient to honor significant and ongoing contributions to our regional economy. The Jerry Awards are named in honor of Jerry Richardson, founder and owner of the Carolina Panthers, and Jerry Orr, former aviation director of Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2018 Jerry Award winners: the Charlotte Knights and Lincoln Harris. These stellar enterprises embody the highest qualities in a Jerry Award winner.
The Charlotte Knights are the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox and compete within Minor League Baseball’s International League. BB&T Ballpark, with its vibrant uptown skyline view, is the home of the Charlotte Knights. Each year BB&T Ballpark hosts 70 Knights games, college baseball games, exhibition baseball games and hundreds of outside events. As a community gathering point, the Knights offer affordable family entertainment to residents across the greater Charlotte Metropolitan Area.
Lincoln Harris, together with Lincoln Property Company, provides clients with a national platform and unparalleled institutional resources, including commercial real estate development, investment and property management. Lincoln Harris has built a solid reputation as one of the region’s most accomplished full-service commercial real estate companies. They take pride in developing and implementing comprehensive national real estate programs and cultivating a sense of trust in the communities and individuals they serve.
Please join us in honoring these recipients at the 2018 Jerry Awards on March 20, 2018. Registration is now open. Reserve your tickets here: http://crpjerryawards.com/register
