Gaston chamber members and businesses honored

October 1, 2016 by  

The Small Business Awards and Gala celebration is taking place next month in Gastonia. It is a presentation of the Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce.

This is an important networking event for area businesses and those who plan to join the Chamber of Commerce.

The evening event will start off with a reception where there will no doubt be plenty of networking opportunities and the exchange of premium business cards from Gastonia business leaders.

It will then be followed by a sit-down dinner where the networking will continue. The awards will take place after that. There will be six awards presented which are the Inspiration Award for business person of the year, the Vision Award for entrepreneur of the year, the Commerce Award for business of the year (there will be three awarded, for 1-15 employees, for 16-50 and for over 51 employees) and the Champion Award for business advocate of the year. All winners must be members in good standing of the Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce.

This event will be a good chance for local businesses to make connections and to help their businesses grow, as well as the opportunity to celebrate their peers.

The Small Business Awards and Gala will be held at the Gaston Country Club on November 3 from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. Tickets are $65 each. To learn more, call 704-864-2621.
