The Brevard Schools Foundation is seeking sponsors for the 2020 ABC Awards as the foundation Applauds Brevard’s Champions at the biggest educational event of the year – The ABC Awards.
Honorees from each school and other guests were treated to a reception featuring “A Taste of Brevard Public Schools’ Culinary Arts Programs” with live entertainment at the reception and on the main stage of the King Center.
