In case you were wondering, the title is somewhat sarcastic; however, it originates from a poster for “The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards,” brought to us by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association®.
The poster in question depicts a towering Golden Globe statue, set against a red and gold background, surrounded by palm trees. Why do I bring this up? Well once again, Georgia Community Support and Solutions will be hosting our “Golden Goals Awards,” honoring achievements of people with disabilities, this September. And no, the above picture isn’t what they actually look like…hopefully I can get an accurate photo soon.
Since the awards show was such a great success last year, we plan to make this year’s event even better.
First of all, we expect to have more awards categories than the previous year. Second of all, in addition to acknowledging only the winners, all of the nominees will be recognized in some way. Third, the venue for the awards will likely be changed (although the new one is TBA).
In any case, the Community Relations department and I are still brainstorming on how the program should be designed, what prizes will be awarded, what speakers will be featured, etc.
And although this event is hosted by our organization, nominees for awards can come from any disability support organization in Georgia. In fact, individuals can even be living independent of a support program and still be nominated.
