It was an afternoon with the stars at last week’s 2018 ChamberChoice Awards luncheon at the Delta by Marriott, where we honored a new group of businesses, non-profits and entrepreneurs in our community. James Cunningham returned as emcee, and Tom Dawson, Dawson Insurance, and Roger Reierson, Flint Group, represented the event’s presenting sponsors.
The organizations and individual receiving honors were:
- Small Not-for-Profit of the Year: Emergency Food Pantry, Inc.
- Not-for-Profit of the Year: Great Plains Food Bank
- Small Business of the Year: Prairie Winds Veterinary Center
- Business of the Year: Eide Bailly, LLP
- Young Professionals Best Place to Work: Office Sign Company
- Entrepreneur of the Year: Tyrone Leslie, Heritage Homes, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties, Total Home Services, DT Holdings and RMZ Developments
- People’s Choice: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley
The award finalists and winners were selected by a panel of independent judges from the regional business community, who evaluated accomplishments in the areas of business growth, innovation, creativity, community involvement and unique achievements relating to a specific business or industry. The People’s Choice Award was determined from the nominee that garnered the most votes from the public during a two-week online voting period.
Congrats to all of this year’s winners, and thank you to everyone that helped make this event possible.
