Michigan Celebrates Small Business
Michigan Celebrates Small Business May 2, 2013 in Lansing!
MICHIGAN – There is now an opportunity for more people to support Michigan’s outstanding, award-winning small businesses at the state’s 8th annual “Michigan Celebrates Small Business” awards dinner to be held in Lansing on May 3rd.
“Thanks to the generosity of this year’s underwriters, the MCSB organizers have been able to accomplish a longstanding goal to decrease the event’s ticket price,” says Jennifer Deamud, Associate State Director of the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center. “In a time of ever-growing prices, we are proud to change that trend. For the first time in seven years the ticket price will drop substantially to $95.” The expectation with the decreased ticket price is more community members, such as Chambers, EDCs and small business owners will be able to attend to support the businesses in their community that are being awarded.
“Michigan Celebrates is an opportunity to tell the new story of Michigan — a story of bright futures and exciting companies that are building Michigan’s economy,” says Penny Lewandowski, Director of Entrepreneurship and Development at the Edward Lowe Foundation. “This is the place to celebrate and acknowledge their success and to learn who and what is driving the state’s momentum.”
Tickets are $95 per person or receive a discount and reserve a table of ten for $900. The evening includes a cocktail reception, a keynote speaker and the awards dinner at the Lansing Center in Lansing. Black tie is optional. To register online go to http://www.MichiganCelebrates.biz
