The Night Stars Come Out
The Harford County Chamber of Commerce’s annual prestigious Harford Award was held at Richlin Ballroom on Sept. 10, an annual event that honors Harford County businesses in a variety of categories, while paying special attention to the successful men and women who run these exemplary companies.
This year’s event was themed “The Night Stars Come Out,” and the venue was transformed into a spectacular star-studded award ceremony. As businesses and organizations that have been shining for years, the winners were recognized for their strong commitment to the Harford County community. Each winner demonstrates business growth, increased employment, service to the community, unique and creative business strategies, technology innovation, support of public and private education, as well as working diligently to enhance Harford County’s business climate.
In addition to the six category winners, the Harford County Office of Economic Development introduced a new honor: The Economic Enhancement Award. As the name suggests, the award was presented to a company or organization that significantly impacted the business climate of Harford County through increased employment opportunities revenue flow. The award was given to the producers of House of Cards, a hugely popular film series filmed in Harford County.
The event was made possible through the financial support of sponsors including Harford County Office of Economic Development, Harford County Public Library, BG&E, The Daily Record and Harford Community College. I95
