The 2016 Good Neighbor and Business of the Year Awards

The Frankfort Avenue Business Association (FABA) announces the recipients of the 2016 Good Neighbor and Business of the Year Awards on Saturday, December 3rd during the Olde-Tyme Christmas Celebration.  

The 2016 Business of Year Award, given to a business that is extremely involved in the local community, is being presented to The Hub Louisville.  The Hub is centrally located on the Avenue and has made brilliant use of the space, which had been a tire company. The Hub has made great efforts to connect with the community, even before they opened, to quell any concerns that the neighbors may have about noise, parking, and litter. The Hub has hosted many neighborhood events, including the first annual Money for the Bunny karaoke fundraiser in 2016.  The Hub is a perfect spot for a meal, light appetizers, drinks, games, private functions, and dancing. Business partners Eric Wentworth and Talmage Collins serve on the FABA board as co-VPs of the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop.

The Good Neighbor Award is given to an individual or business recognized for their work to improve the quality of life in the community. This year, the Good Neighbor award is presented to Mark Gaff.  Mark currently serves as President of the Crescent Hill Community Council. Through his work with the council he has brought increased involvement with new and younger neighbors. He and his husband Jack Tindal have been featured on the Crescent Hill Garden Tour and Crescent Hill Home Tour. He works tirelessly organizing a variety of events, including removing china berry vines around the neighborhood. Mark most recently purchased the Crescent Hill Trading Company at the corner of Frankfort Avenue and So. Bayly.

The Awards will be presented by District 9 Councilman Bill Hollander at 2:00 pm at Margaret’s Consignment at 2700 Frankfort Avenue during the Olde-Tyme Christmas celebration.
