Do you know a “hero” in Florida who goes above and beyond to help people? Here’s your chance to help them win up to $6,000!
Now through April 22, individuals can nominate a full-time Florida resident as a “community hero” at cgiwindows.com/heroes. Four people will be recognized and awarded an initial $1,000 cash prize each. After that, a statewide public online voting period will determine the grand prize winner who will be presented with a $5,000 cash prize.
This year, Hialeah-based CGI Windows & Doors, part of the PGT Innovations family of brands, is expanding its successful initial south Florida “CGI Heroes: Celebrating Strength” initiative into a statewide contest.
“Our first CGI Heroes campaign in 2020 resulted in hundreds of stories of individuals demonstrating strength and compassion in South Florida. When we saw how the winning stories brought hope to the communities and encouraged others to also take steps to serve those in need around them, we were inspired to expand our contest to the entire state,” said Bob Keller, President of the Southeast Business Unit for PGT Innovations. “It will be our honor to acknowledge the efforts being performed by everyday heroes all over Florida and to highlight their contributions to their communities.”
In 2020, when the window and door manufacturer launched the inaugural contest, four heroes were acknowledged. Here are the previous winners:
In Cutler Bay, Florida, kindergarten teacher Joan Saint-Hilaire.
In Hollywood, watchmaker and ear saver designer Katie Lizana.
And in Overtown, homeless advocate Jarrel Strong.
