What a night!
September 12, 2018 - Last night, we named the top family and private businesses in the region at the 19th annual Goering Center Family & Private Business Awards gala at JACK Casino. Nearly 700 people from our community, including business owners, volunteers, community leaders and corporate partners, attended the celebration.
More than 500 businesses were nominated for the awards. An independent panel of judges had the challenging task of identifying 75 semi-finalists. Of those, six were named winners and 12 were designated as finalists in family and private business divisions based on their number of employees.
If you weren't able to join us last night, we have you covered. Check out who the winners and finalists are below, and don't miss the "grand finale" re-cap.
