What’s Right With the Region – At Home will happen live in your living room…or on your front porch…or in your backyard on Thursday, September 3rd. Join us as we network and celebrate our honorees virtually.

Each year, FOCUS applauds the efforts of the individuals, organizations and/or initiatives making a positive difference in the St. Louis region with our What’s Right With the Region event. While the day to day challenges and issues facing our community prevents us from convening in person, hope is still abundant and this a major reason why it is essential to find a way for the show to go on in 2020.

We all need a reminder now and again of the good that surrounds us, in the people and organizations who work tirelessly to make our region stronger—that is one of the reasons it was so important for FOCUS to find a way to acknowledge those efforts virtually.

Awards Reception & Presentation

Your ticket for the evening includes the virtual networking reception and music by Darin Wigfall, from 5:00-6:00 p.m., followed by the award celebration from 6:00-6:45 p.m. Registration confirmation and log-in instructions for What’s Right With the Region – At Home! will be sent to attendees the week of the event.


Thank you to all who submitted nominations for our 2020 What’s Right with the Region Awards, as well as our panel of community judges!
