Several local businesses were recognized on Wednesday for their commitment to the Erie community.
The Commitment to Erie Awards took place on Wednesday night, at the Ambassador Conference Center.
Hundreds of people came out for the event.
The awards honor local employers for their overall commitment to the city.
The Legacy Award was also given on Wednesday night.
That award goes to an individual, company, or organization that has improved the region's economy.
Tonight's winner was Nick Scott Senior, of Scott Enterprises.
"I'm deeply appreciative and flattered actually that I was chosen for the legacy award," said Nick Scott Sr. "And it has a deep meaning for me because it's actually 50 years now that I've been working with Scott Enterprises and we've made progress every year and we've created some things I think that have lasting value for the Erie community."
The Commitment to Erie awards are held every year.
