For the fourth consecutive year, since the category was created, ECCO was voted the Best Non-Profit Group by readers of the Moultrie News! Other winners in this year’s Readers’ Choice awards include Advanced Hearing Care, Tara Griffin DSS, Roper St. Francis, Billy Swails – State Farm, South State Bank, and more. East Cooper Meals on Wheels was also recognized as the finalist for Best Non-Profit Group and Charleston Animal Society as Best Non-Profit Pet Organization.
With a 27 percent increase in voting, the Moultrie News announced the winners in a special section published on July 27. There is an online section dedicated to the winners that will stay up until the end of the year so anyone can see the full list.
On Thursday evening, July 27 at Alhambra Hall, Moultrie News hosted their annual Best of the Best awards ceremony recognizing the locals’ favorite establishments and industries in the Lowcountry. ECCO is fortunate to have participated in the event, and Stephanie Kelley had the chance to speak about the organization and thank the community for their support.
“This annual contest and celebration is very much anticipated every year by our readers and businesses. For the first time ever we opened up ticket sales to the general public so they too could join in on the party,” said Moultrie News publisher Vickey Boyd. The contest and event has been growing every year.
