Greater Louisville Inc. announces recipients of prestigious Silver Fleur-de-Lis Awards

Louisville, KY (October 17, 2023) – To honor commitment to and investment in the region, Greater Louisville Inc. (GLI) announced that it will honor three organizations with its Silver Fleur-De-Lis Awards. Each year, these awards are given to celebrate individuals and organizations who have made the Louisville community a better place to live and work over the past year. This year’s recipients will be recognized at GLI’s Annual Meeting presented by Baird on January 16th at the Kentucky International Convention Center.
Three organizations, represented by six individuals, will be recognized for their work in 2023:

  • CenterWell Senior Primary Care will be recognized for the successful opening of several senior-focused primary care centers in Louisville and their impact on underserved communities.
  • Derby City Gaming will be recognized for the grand opening of their downtown location, which will drive positive economic growth and downtown tourism.
  • Valhalla Golf Partners, LLC, owned by Junior Bridgeman, Jimmy Kirchdorfer, Chester Musselman, and David Novak, will be recognized for purchasing Valhalla Golf Club and preserving the club’s Louisville legacy.

“I am proud to recognize each of this year’s Silver Fleur-de-Lis recipients for their strong dedication to making our community better,” said Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, president and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc. “For our region to continue to grow and thrive, we need dedicated organizations and individuals, like those we are recognizing with this year’s Silver Fleur-de-Lis awards, who go above and beyond to provide economic investment and growth in the Greater Louisville region.”

GLI’s Annual Meeting, presented by Baird, is the region’s largest gathering of business leaders, celebrating the accomplishments of the past year, highlighting our region’s community leaders, and bringing together innovators. Last month, GLI announced Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America, and Bill Carstanjen, CEO of Churchill Downs Incorporated, as the keynote speakers for the 2024 Annual Meeting to discuss the economic impact of the upcoming 150th Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May, followed by the PGA Championship in mid-May.
