CLEARWATER – Ruth Eckerd Hall won the prestigious 2017 Judges Choice Award at the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting Jan. 26 at the Sheraton Sand Key Hotel.
Zev Buffman, president and CEO of Ruth Eckerd Hall Inc., and Frank Hibbard, Ruth Eckerd Hall vice-chair, accepted the award.
The chamber noted that at the discretion of the judges when two outstanding organizations are nominees in the same category and both rated equal in all of the six standards of assessing the organization, the judging committee can agree to bestow the Judges’ Choice award.
“It is a great honor to accept this award on behalf of our staff, members and board of directors,” Buffman said in a press release. “I value our partnership and friendship and look forward to another great year working together.”
