(BlackNews.com) — “No good deed goes unpunished.” This age-old adage can mislead the kindhearted into believing good deeds backfire. The reality is good deeds often go unnoticed. ACCOLADE Celebrations, LLC was founded in 2014 in hopes of celebrating those who take it upon themselves to help another, purely out of kindness.
The Acts of Kindness Awards Gala honors members of the community for selfless acts that have brightened a stranger’s day, made a difference in someone else’s life, or brought hope and promise to dismal circumstances. Honorees are acknowledged in a beautiful, ballroom setting. The evening’s festivities will include an exquisitely catered banquet and mini-concert. The 2018 Acts of Kindness Awards Gala will be held from 7pm to 11pm on Saturday, April 28th at Martin’s Crosswinds, located at 7400 Greenway Center Drive in Greenbelt, Maryland.
“This will be our 3rd annual event,” says Wanda Adams, ACCOLADE Celebrations, LLC founder, Chief Executive Officer, and producer of the Acts of Kindness Awards. “Tragic events around the country are growing more disturbing. Regardless of what goes on in politics and society, there is so much good in the world. We work to remind people of that, as often as we can. Anyone in the D.C., Virginia, and Maryland metropolitan areas can nominate someone they know for any of four award categories. It is our pleasure to seek out, highlight, and celebrate kindness wherever we find it, especially now.”
