Local nonprofits will get $65,000 in donations from employees of Breckenridge Grand Vacations who were recently honored for their accomplishments throughout 2018, according to the company.

The “Grandy” Awards, as they’re known, are the company’s way to recognize outstanding employee performance throughout the year. Individually or as a team, the winners will each get to donate $5,000 to the charity of his or her choice, or split the amount between organizations.

All donations will be made this year in conjunction with BGV Gives’ spring or fall grants cycle. BGV Gives is the company’s philanthropic wing. Some of the organizations previously supported through the Grandy Awards include Advocates for Victims of Assault, Summit County Rescue Group and Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center.

Awards and recipients in 2018 were as follows:

• Top Recruiters — David Serrano, Kia Grant and Mitchell Spielberger

• Superior Service — Greg Kruger and Kevin Kundiger

• Behind the Scenes Hero Award — Jill Johnson, Michael “Patch” Doyle, Tony Cooper and Zack Black

• Greatest Change Award — Katy Bath

• The Rob Millisor Volunteer of the Year Award — Eli Yoder

• OneBGV Award — BGV Human Resources Team

• The Kaizen Award for continuous improvement — BGV Creative Services Team

BGV Sales and Concierge staff were also recognized in a year of record-breaking sales. Winners were Jessica Schumacher, Mike Stables, Russell Galloway, Tina Zimmerman, Aaron Olthoff, Sean Berg, Matt Spitalny and Greg Cohen.

Also, 126 BGV employees were recognized for their longevity, ranging from 5 to 19 years with the company.

All 2018 Grand Vacation Award recipients were entered in a drawing for a vacation to anywhere in the U.S., excluding Hawaii, or Mexico with round-trip flights for two, and $500 in spending cash. The winner was sales executive broker JW Hermes.
