SAGE Award Winners Announced!
MetroAction and The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce are pleased to congratulate the winners of the SAGE Awards (Scranton Awards for Growth and Excellence).
The winners were announced at the inaugural Chamber Awards Gala, presented by Penn Security Bank and Trust, on November 11 at the Mellow Theater, Lackawanna College. Twenty-one area business owners were honored at this Hollywood-style event.
The SAGE Awards celebrate the outstanding efforts of the local business community and their talent, creativity, and innovation in a challenging business environment. Each year, MetroAction and the Chamber recognize area businesses for various achievements. We are proud to honor members who make contributions to the business community as they contribute to the growth of our tremendous quality of life.
For a complete list of all award winners, please visit MetroAction’s website. Also announced was the winner of the first-ever People’s Choice Award, sponsored by People’s National Bank. Every SAGE Award finalist, with the exception of Pride and Progress Award finalists, was entered into that category. The winner, Kelly’s Pub and Eatery, was chosen by a community-wide popular vote. More than 10,000 people cast their ballots online.
