Awards of Excellence

Awards of Excellence

The Awards of Excellence celebrate businesses who have shined brightly over the year. First-round voting is open to the public followed by voting by The Chamber membership. Winners are announced at the gala in December.

Join us December 7th from 6pm-9pm when Quail Lodge is transformed into Studio 54 for an evening of glamour, elegance and, of course, disco to celebrate this year’s Awards of Excellence.

Eighteen categories plus Business of the Year will receive the star award for businesses and organizations which are nominated by the community and selected by chamber members. The gala includes a wine reception, dinner, silent auction, drawing, and Awards Presentations.
