St. Charles Charlemagne Award Dinner
BEI Properties was happy to support the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce’s 97th Charlemagne Award Dinner which is a wonderful event that recognizes businesses and the St. Charles community.
Being an Award Sponsor along with the City of St. Charles we are proud to recognize the businesses within the three categories; Civic Image, Community Image and Community Development. The Civic Image Award recognizes business for humanitarian efforts and civic projects. The Community Image Award is given to businesses who have made significant improvements to their business. The Community Development Award is given to businesses who broke ground for new construction, or extensive renovation projects. Overall there were 26 award winners and we applaud all of them for investing in their business and assisting in increasing and promoting vitality in the community.
One award that is annually given out is the Chairman’s Award. This is given to the person who assist the Board Chair, displays leadership and is selected to receive the award for their hard work. Developing the marketing committee in 2018 and taking on a leading role as the Marketing Committee Chair, Debbie Gurley, Broker at Miscella Real Estate guided and assisted in the selection of a brand-new Chamber website that will be introduced later this year. This along with many other ways Debbie stepped up to assist Chairman of the Board, Sharon Spero, throughout the year! Congrats to Debbie!
Reaching an anniversary is a huge accomplishment for businesses and we congratulate all the businesses celebrating anniversaries! Here at BEI, Properties we look forward to celebrating our 60th Anniversary this year!
