On March 18, the Charleston Area Alliance will host its seventh annual "We Love Our Community Awards" at the Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council headquarters, located at 321 Virginia St. West.

The event is from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and will recognize 13 recipients from the Kanawha Valley.

"This is another fantastic program and each year, the Alliance is excited to host an event that shines a spotlight on the best of Charleston," said Susie Salisbury, the Alliance's vice president of community development. "This is about the grace of our people, places and culture, and recognizing these recipients fit well with our mission — building a vibrant community and prosperous economy."

The program includes awards for several categories, including Outstanding Preservation, Best Development, Best Re-Development, Community Celebration, Youth Volunteer, Servant Leader and the Kanawha Heritage award, among others.

The event is free to attend.
