The AHR Expo was held in Atlanta January 14-16, 2019, and gave back to the Atlanta community with a donation of $20,500 from its Innovation Awards program to the Atlanta Police Athletic League.
Each year, the AHR Expo donates the entry fees from the Innovation Awards competition to a charitable organization within the region where the Show is being held. For 2019, the AHR Expo has chosen to donate the funds to the Atlanta Police Athletic League (PAL), a non-profit public benefit corporation working under the mission of providing a safe environment for Atlanta area youth to reach their full potential through a partnership with local police and the surrounding community. PAL was found-ed in 1983 as a community partnership between the Atlanta Police Department (APD), NPU’s, Community Investors and local Business Associations. The partnership has pioneered programs serving at-risk youths aged 8-18 years by implementing constructive, planned athletic and academic activities aimed at teaching moral, civic and social principles in a safe and nurturing environment.
