The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce hosted its Chamber Gala in November, presenting the Fall 2021 SAGE Awards – the Scranton Awards for Growth and Excellence. This year’s event was held at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center and sponsored by Fidelity Bank.
Chamber board chair, Deborah Kolsovsky, opened the ceremony thanking all finalists, award sponsors, and Gala sponsors for their dedication to the NEPA community. Emcee for the evening was Barry Snyder – formerly known as B-Ray with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre baseball franchise and now with the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties. Musical entertainment was provided by Lexington Entertainment and EJ the DJ.
The SAGE Awards honor outstanding local businesses for their talent, creativity, and innovation. The Fall SAGE Awards also included the IMPACT Awards, which were created to honor and recognize the innovation our local businesses employed due to COVID-19.
