A large number of Dunmore businesses were winners when The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce hosted its Chamber Gala in March presenting the 2021 SAGE Awards – the Scranton Awards for Growth and Excellence.
Borough businesses who came up winners included Fidelity Bank, Business of the Year winner; DePietro’s Pharmacy, Impact: Community Outreach winner; Space Time Mead & Cider Works, New and Emerging Business of the Year winner; Hematology & Oncology Associates of NEPA, People’s Choice winner, and United Sports Academy, Small Business of the Year.
This year’s event was a hybrid celebration with SAGE finalists and award sponsors attending at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center, while other guests enjoyed viewing parties from home via Zoom.
Chamber president, Bob Durkin, and Chamber board chair, Patrick Fricchione, opened the ceremony thanking all finalists, award sponsors, and Gala sponsors for their dedication to the NEPA community. Emcee for the evening was Thom Welby, with musical entertainment provided by Lexington Entertainment.
The SAGE Awards honor outstanding local businesses for their talent, creativity, and innovation. This year, the awards were enhanced to honor and recognize the innovation our local businesses employed due to COVID-19.
