Quigley House took top honors at the 13th Annual Reinhold Community Service Awards Breakfast on Thursday and received a $10,000 award for its efforts in helping women and children survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

"In dealing with one of the most destructive realities of today's culture, this comprehensive service has repeatedly set a standard of excellence in combating domestic violence and sexual assault," said former Green Cove Springs Junior High School principal and judge Ken Francis.

The Reinhold Corporation honored 49 community service groups, one executive director and three volunteers throughout Clay County at the Hilltop Restaurant with $70,000 in award money.

Francis, Elaine Halley, Bob Head, Michael Mayo and Nancy Ulrich judged the applications.

Larry Hills of PET Florida received the Volunteer of the Year award for his continuous efforts in producing Personal Energy Transportation vehicles with the help of volunteers at Penney Retirement Community.

Challenge Enterprises director Nancy Keating received the Executive Director award and $5,000 for her work with individuals living with disabilities and their families in Clay County.

For the first time, judges came to a three-way tie for the $5,000 Judges Choice award. The Clay County Police Athletic League, Waste Not Want Not, Inc. and the Orange Park Community Theatre each received awards.

"For us, learning about the diversity of your efforts as we see you work toward your goals and mission year after year and getting to know your new efforts as they develop bring a sense of pride to me and everyone who lives in Clay County," said Jack Myers, president of the Reinhold Corporation.

The ceremony also honored 15 organizations that received $1,000 awards and 30 groups that received $500.

To date, Reinhold has given out $675,000 to 150 Clay County organizations.
