The evening will start with a cocktail reception which will be followed by dinner and the awards program.

This recognition is important in that it recognizes those who go beyond the mundane and make a real effort to make their business successful and to add value to the community. Those starting a new business or who are having trouble taking their business to the next level can learn from the example of those who win such awards.
