Corpus Christi Under 40 named its 2016 honorees Wednesday during an announcement mixer at Executive Surf Club.
For the past 11 years, the initiative has honored emerging leaders in the Coastal Bend whose achievements have benefited the community economically, socially and culturally. The awards are sponsored by the Young Business Professional of the Coastal Bend in conjunction with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and American Bank as the title sponsor.
It also was announced during the event that a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastal Bend.
"They have set their roots in our community," said H-E-B public affairs representative Kristina Leal. "Through their actions and professional endeavors, they have made our community stronger."
Honorees will be recognized at the annual Corpus Christi Under 40 Awards breakfast on Feb. 2. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at ccu40.org.
