Chamber Connection: The countdown award excellence continues


It is finally the month of June — an exciting month for the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce (CDCC), CDCC members, the community, and staff because it is the month to honor Excellence in Business in Kent County. Mark your calendars, grab your plus one (or two, or three, or four), pick out your favorite, fancy attire and get ready for an evening celebrating excellence.

The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to attend the Annual Awards for Excellence Celebration, brought to you by Signature Sponsor, Merrill Lynch – Connell & Associates on Wednesday, June 28. This year’s celebration will be held at the elegant Bally’s Dover Casino Resort – Rollins Center in Dover, beginning with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m. The program will follow at 6:15 and the evening’s festivities will conclude at 9 p.m.

The Awards for Excellence Celebration is undoubtedly the event of the year for the CDCC. This event marks the end of this nonprofit’s fiscal year in the best way possible – giving back and showcasing their wonderful business members. Attendees will enjoy time to network and catch up with familiar and new friends. The CDCC is all about bringing people together to strengthen the community and this event accomplishes this goal tremendously.

At the heart of this event, we will finally reveal who CDCC members voted as the best of the best. An award in each of the following categories will be presented. In the Large Employer of the Year category: Bally’s Dover Casino Resort, Kraft Heinz Food Company, Polytech Adult Education. In the Small Business of the Year category: The Ice House: Wellness + Community, Pressley Ridge, Sambo’s Tavern. In the Young Professional of the Year category: Lauren Webb – Dedicated to Women OB/Gyn, Stephen Burgess - Fireside Partners, Inc., and Ryne Johnson – Advantech. Being nominated is an honor to be extremely proud of and the CDCC is so grateful to work alongside Kent County Excellence. The CDCC was happy to leave the ballot vote to their member business community because the wonderful nominees make the decision is entirely too difficult. The CDCC thanks everyone who voted in support of their peers – it truly means so much to be able to honor them in this special Delaware way.

Also, expect to hear the State of the Chamber address, summarizing the accomplishments of the last year from the CDCC. They appreciate their many volunteers throughout the year and will also take a moment to recognize their valued efforts, time, and assistance to them and their members.
The CDCC is very excited to see the community in their best evening attire, walking the red carpet, enjoying delicious food and beverages, smiling, laughing, and connecting for an evening of Excellence this June.
