I had the privilege of attending the Twin Cities North Chamber of Commerce 2014 Excellence in Business Awards last Thursday night. It was held at Brunswick Zone XL in Blaine, MN.
What a fun place to hold an event! The theme was “80‘s Party” and there was lot’s of great food and fun activities for everyone. Activities included bowling of course, Laser Tag, Game Arcade, Darts, the silent auction, 80’s music Laser Frenzy, 80‘s costume contests, dancing and lots of opportunities to mingle with each other.
It’s always great to see all of our local business friends at Chamber events and the annual Gala is always really fun! Here’s the highlights from last years gala “Take Me Out To The Ballgame!”
The annual Gala is where the Chamber honors local businesses with it’s Excellence in Business Awards. Here’s the Excellence in Business Award winners for 2014 followed by a highlight video we put together from the evenings festivities! Congratulations to all of you from Michael and Joannie!
