NHBR celebrates business excellence

The achievements of several impressive New Hampshire businesspeople will be celebrated at NHBR’s seventh annual Business Excellence Awards festivities.

The evening — which begins at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7, at The Event Center at C.R. Sparks in Bedford — will include a champagne celebration and an extended period for networking after the presentation of the annual Business Excellence Awards. Radio talk show host Charlie Sherman of WGIR-AM610 will emcee.

This year’s Business Excellence Awards competition attracted more than 70 nominations in 13 different award categories. They are the owners and operators of businesses with 100 employees or fewer who have displayed imagination, industriousness, innovation and achievement in their career. Winners and inductees to the

NHBR Business Excellence Hall of Fame will also be announced at the Oct. 7 event.

“This year there has been more interest than ever in the awards,” Feingold says. “We hope friends, family and colleagues come to support the nominees — and help us celebrate our anniversary.”

Individual admission is $20; $15 if you RSVP by Sept. 30. You can make reservations by visiting NHBR.com or contacting 603-413-5113 or eauger@nh.com.

Proceeds benefit CASA of NH, an organization that provides volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children in the New Hampshire court system.

Other sponsors include Laconia Savings Bank, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care of New England, Public Service of New Hampshire, Corks A Wine Bar, Merrimack Street Volvo, WGIR-AM610, New Hampshire Public Television and The Event Center at C.R.
