Hargrave’s Joyce honored

Dec 2, 2014 by Guest Writer

Mike Joyce, CEO of Hargrave Custom Yachts, was honored with a special award from the 1 World Foundation in recognition of his efforts on behalf of the charity.

The award reads: Presented to Michael F. Joyce for his generous support and untiring advocacy on behalf of the people with special needs in Northern New York, Ontario, Canada, and the Turks & Caicos Islands, BWI.

“I thought I had a tight budget but these guys create miracles and they are running on fumes,” said Joyce, who has close ties to all three regions. “I think the media often portrays a stereotypical image of people who are physically or mentally challenged, but when you are fortunate enough to be in one of their centers where you can appreciate firsthand these men and women who are filled with love, hope, and enthusiasm, it is really a game changer.”
