Annual dinner to celebrate business in Lake Champlain

October 25, 2013 by  

The Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce will be having its 103rd annual dinner this November in Burlington. Guests will also be treated to a cocktail party beforehand.

The Classic Cocktail Reception will feature hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and musical entertainment from Rick and the Ramblers. Cocktail attire is recommended for what will be a chance for businesspersons to network with fellow Chamber members and non-member companies.

Last year’s dinner attracted almost 700 guests and this year is expected to be no different. In addition to a delicious sit-down dinner, the event is a chance to honor some of the top businesses of the year through business and community awards. Some of the awards which will be handed out during the evening will be Business of the Year, Rising Star, Community Excellence, Creative Edge, and the A. Wayne Roberts Entrepreneurial Spirit Award.

The reception and dinner will attract guests from all over the area, including nearby Hinesburg. Local print companies will probably be supplying products such as tickets or invitations to be distributed to members.

The Classic Cocktail Reception and the dinner will take place at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center on November 12 beginning at 5:00 pm. Tickets for the reception alone are $15 for Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce members or $20 for non-members. The price of the reception will be included in that of the tickets for the dinner. To find out more about either event, call 802-863-3489.
