For the 17th year, Roy Yamaguchi, owner of Roy’s Restaurant in Jacksonville Beach, has opened the doors of his restaurant and the parking lot as well to supporters of the Monique Burr Foundation. As a special “thank you” for all he has done to bolster the organization, Yamaguchi was presented with the Foundation’s highest honor, the Champion of Safety Award, during MBF’s annual Night at Roy’s, April 30. The award has only been presented to two others, Florida Attorney General Pamela Bondi and M.G. Orender, president of Hampton Golf, during the nonprofit’s 22-year tenure.

During the fun-filled Hawaiian-themed event, UNF Kappa Delta sorority sisters presented MBF Founder Edward Burr with a check for $10,000 and MBF Executive Director Lynn Layton unveiled the nonprofit’s newest initiative, Prevent 360, which aims to even better protect children and teenagers from bullying and sexual abuse.
