Allison Stronza, Executive Director for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), recently accepted the 2016 award for Lynchburg Small Business of the Year, presented by the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance. "We are so grateful to be honored…this is just amazing. We have worked so hard this year overcoming some obstacles with funding…we have an amazing group of people who all are super heros." Of the 24 nominees for Small Business Awards, one is chosen in each of five categories: nonprofit, retail, manufacturing and industrial, restaurants and venue, and business and professional services. One of those is chosen as the overall "Small Business of the Year." CASA also won in the nonprofit category.
