Thank God Delray is blessed with a lot of giving individuals! The 2017 list of nominees for MLK Heroes of Delray looks strong again. However, we know there are other deserving nominees out there who didn’t make the list. Please forgive us for any omissions as these are unintentional.

In general, nominees should represent outstanding contributions to the Delray Beach nonprofit sector. In particular, MLK Heroes of Delray seeks to recognize contributions made in a spirit of selfless service, compassion, and love. Think of Dr. King as an example!

Other factors we ask people to consider in nomating a hero of Delray:

  • Relevance of the contribution, i.e., how big the impact to our city
  • Scale of the contribution, i.e., how important the cause to our city’s overall health and well being
  • Character of the contribution – in what spirit has the contribution been made, e.g., selfless service, compassion, and love of neighbor

 Nominations for 2017 MLK Heroes of Delray are closed. A preliminary list of 2017 nominees appears below the line.
