Gallagher & Co., and Dan Lavender, president and CEO of The Moorings Park Institute, Inc., into Junior Achievement’s Business Hall of Fame.

Encore Urology is the presenting sponsor for the event. Structure Medical and Title Professionals of Florida are diamond sponsors, and Arthrex and Moorings Park are platinum sponsors. Gold sponsors include Naples Daily News and Stock Development.

The prestigious award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who serve as role models for youth through their professional accomplishments and commitment to the community.

The laureates will be recognized during a dinner and awards ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 24 at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Beach Resort in Naples. While the event is sold out, Junior Achievement is still accepting sponsors to support student admission, which is $125 per ticket.
