Keystone Business Alliance (KBA) has announced the winners of its second annual Business Excellence Awards. The honors will be presented at KBA's annual awards dinner and gala on January 24 at the Hilton Harrisburg.
KBA’s Business Excellence Awards recognize chamber members who have demonstrated dedication to fostering LGBTQ+ equality in Central Pennsylvania. Awardees were nominated by fellow KBA members and individuals within our local community for the work they have done in the past year to advance the cause of LGBTQ+ equality.
This year’s awardees are Advocate of the Year, The Lancaster LGBTQ+ Coalition; Certified Business of the Year, Voycetress Media; Corporate Partner of the Year, UPMC Pinnacle; and Member of the Year, York Revolution.
“Last year, we named our inaugural Business Excellence Award winners at our annual dinner and awards gala” said Harry Young, Executive Director for KBA. “There is so much happening in Central PA around LGBTQ+ equality, and we thought it was important to recognize and celebrate the contributions of our local business community.”
The January 24 event is KBA’s largest fundraiser and celebration of the year. This year’s gala will feature Keynote Speaker Tyler Titus. A licensed professional counselor, advocate, trauma specialist, and elected School Board Director, Titus, of Erie, PA, became the first openly elected transgender official in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in November 2017. Additionally, he serves as co-vice chair of the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs.
