RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia’s First Lady Pamela Northam announced this year’s honorees for Richmond History Makers this morning during a Facebook live.
Richmond History Makers is a program that promotes and celebrates the bold, innovative, and often unsung work of individuals and organizations who strive to improve their communities. The program is co-hosted by the Valentine and the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond.
“The life-changing work that we have seen take place across the Richmond Region this year is unlike any other,” Valentine Director Bill Martin said. “These individuals and organizations stepped up in the face of so many challenging circumstances, and they deserve an evening to be celebrated in front of their community!”
