Thursday night's ceremony at Farmington Country Club paid tribute to area non-profit organizations, as well as the individuals within those groups that make them so successful in the work they do in the Charlottesville area.

The Charlottesville Free Clinic took home the award in excellence for their work over the past 15 years that they've been in the community.

Building Goodness Foundation was honored with a special award, the inspirational achievement award.

Gordon Walker with JABA was given the award of excellence in non-profit leadership.

“I feel overwhelmed,” said Walker. “I mean obviously I have the good fortune to work in a community that really does care about the less fortunate, so when we go forward as an organization trying to make this community a better place for everyone, the community has responded."

The individual winner, as well as the organizations awarded, were chosen by a panel of various members of the community.

But organizers say tonight was a chance to honor all of the finalists, as well as those who walked away with awards.

The local branch of the United Way works to bring together non-profit organizations, volunteers and businesses to help those in need in the area.
