This year is the 21st annual event and the Awards will take place at Dwight hall. There are 15 awards, and the nominations close January 20, 2017.
Once they close, a panel of six business leaders in the community spend a full day going thru the hundreds of nominations that they’ve received.
The event sells out at 350 people for the dinner and the Awards. There is a huge silent and live auction, too–and there’s still time to donate a prize!
It’s a great night where the Chamber of Commerce gets to recognize local businesses who have gone above and beyond.
