PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A pandemic didn’t stop many South Floridians from helping those with the greatest needs. It certainly didn’t stop WPLG Local 10 from honoring them.
Tune in Sunday, Oct. 18, for the 3rd Annual My Future, My Choice LIFE Awards. The half-hour, primetime special will air at 7:30 p.m. and will recognize outstanding members of our community for their contributions in the areas of Leadership, Inspiration, Family and Education. Local 10 will also honor two individuals with the LIFE Changer and LIFEtime awards.
