There are many local volunteers, donors and businesses that have donated their time and resources to help change the lives of people in our area.
On Monday, The Ad Council of Rochester held its annual celebration to recognize those contributions. News10NBC's Scott Kilbury emceed the event.
The Ad Council is something that is unique to the Rochester area.
Katelin Ryan, Ad Council of Rochester, said, "Without the Ad Council to help convene all of these people and all of these resources then things wouldn't happen the way that they do so we're really proud to be here and to have the people that we do in the room that we do today."
A couple of the Ad Council's biggest campaigns right now are fighting against distracted driving and child sexual abuse.
