Winter Park Chamber to Honor Members at Annual Celebration Dinner
On Friday, February 3, 2017, the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Membership Awards Celebration presented by CenturyLink and Rollins College. The evening is a tribute to the members and volunteers who make the organization and community so remarkable. The event will be held at The Alfond Inn beginning at 6:00 p.m.
The evening will honor John Casebier, Senior Vice President of Seacoast Bank, as the recipient of the Lydia Gardner Citizen of the Year Award. The award was instituted in 1985 as an opportunity for the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce to recognize an outstanding member of the community whose leadership and service has made a significant impact to the economic, educational and/or civic well-being of the area. In 2013, the award was renamed posthumously to honor Lydia Gardner for her leadership, passion and public service.
The event will also recognize Chamber members and volunteers in the following categories: Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Ambassador of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Chairman of the Year, Community Organization of the Year, Winter Park Champion of the Year and Chamber Hero. A complete list of award winners and nominees can be found here.
