Host Jessica Koussevitzky was on hand for the 5th annual Community Champions awards event which recognized and honored outstanding leaders who are champions in their profession and in making a difference in our community.
Each year, professionals from the fields of business, education, health care and community service are honored. Champions have a solid community reputation for not only success in business and public service, but also in their philanthropic involvement to help those much less fortunate.

About Deliver the Dream:
A not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Deliver the Dream was founded by Pat Moran, past chairman of JM Family Enterprises, Inc. and one of South Florida’s top business women. After many years of seeing families struggle to stay together as they coped with crisis, Pat dreamed of a program that would allow families facing illness or crisis to alleviate stress, enhance coping skills and enjoy being together again as a family.
In 2002, her realization came true when Deliver the Dream held its first retreat for families who have a parent with cancer. Since then, Deliver the Dream has brought hope and healing to nearly 6,000 family members across the South East United States.
