The 33Rd Annual SUNSHINE Awards Program Cancelled
The 33rd Annual SUNSHINE Awards Program (live program) scheduled for October this year, has been canceled. Gil Figaro, Chairman, and Founder of the SUNSHINE Awards Program said “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and phone calls we have received about this year’s program. These affirmations further underscore the fact that the SUNSHINE Awards Program bridges the gap between excellence and recognition. The impact of the Coronavirus outbreak felt around the world and here across the United States has caused anxiety, fear, frustration, and extreme concern for human life. The SUNSHINE Awards Organization understands these challenges and the difficulties they present to families. Much has changed in the world. Nothing is more important to the SUNSHINE Awards Organization than the health and safety of families, supporters, and communities. Thank you for your support through the years. I hope that you and your families stay healthy and safe during this challenging time.”
