Nominations will be accepted through May 25 at http://www.allenandallen.com/hometown-heroes. Fifty winners will be announced in late June. Finalists will be honored at a series of award events taking place in Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Charlottesville.
"We've witnessed firsthand the everyday heroism found in our community and want to say thank you. Allen and Allen welcomes the community to join us in celebrating the local heroes in their community," said R. Clayton Allen, partner.
