Recognition Luncheon September 14, 2011

PVJOBS brought together labor, business and community leaders to honor our program's top workers and supporters at our annual Recognition Luncheon! This fall's event gave special recognition to Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas who received the "Visionary of the Year award". The two highest performing PVJOBS workers who have turned their lives around through our construction jobs programs were also honored, along with an intern and a "Contractor of the Year," in a moving and inspirational recognition of the achievements of our clients and supporters.
