Small Business & Charity of the Year Awards Dinner

Each summer, the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau is honored to highlight one local small business and one non-profit organization at the Small Business and Charity of the Year Awards Dinner based on nominations from Chamber members.  "The health of our small businesses and non-profits have a direct correlation to the health of our community," said LaDella Thomas, Director of Annual Events and Member Services for the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau.  "Small Businesses create jobs and generate tax revenue and non-profits do a lot of the heavy lifting in our community as they serve the part of our population that lives in poverty."

 

This year, the Small Business and Charity of the Year Awards will be presented at the awards dinner beginning at 5:30pm. on Tuesday, August 6th at Big Cedar Lodge.  "We all know a small business or charity that is the epitome success and it's up to our members to help us recognize them by nominating their favorite small business and charity," Thomas said.  Nominations will be accepted until Wednesday, July 17 at 5:00pm at the Chamber offices.

The Small Business Awards have been presented since 1999. The Charity of the Year award was added in 2009. The nomination forms will be rated by a panel of at least four judges. To receive the non-profit award, the organization must be designated as a Section 501(c)3. Only Chamber members may make a nomination, but the nominee does not have to be a member. For any of these awards, the recipient must be located in Taney or Stone counties. Anonymous or self-nominations will not be accepted.
