Dec. 17th: Celebrate Volunteerism & See Who Wins the Small Business Makeover Contest!

The River Heights Chamber of Commerce will host its annual "Cheers to Our Volunteers" Appreciation Lunch & new Small Business Makeover Reveal on December 17th at Southview Country Club from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.!

The River Heights Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with sponsors Pawn America Minnesota, LLC., Payday America, Xcel Energy and Dakota Electric Association will award its first ever Small Business Makeover Contest Prize at the event to one of three finalists.

The Contest ran from Oct. 16 - Nov. 15, 2013, and challenged the nine candidates to rally their friends, family, customers and colleagues to vote for their business in an online Poll (Nov. 18-27, 2013) for one lucky small business/entrepreneur to win what ended up being a $22.1K Small Business Makeover!

“The Selection Committee thanks all the business who entered the Small Business Makeover Contest and the voting public, who’s input was used in conjunction with the applications to select the winner. The final three businesses all demonstrated a strong commitment to the communities they serve and decades of business presence in the South St Paul and Inver Grove Heights area. In selecting a winner, many factors are considered including a clear need for improvement, the ability to utilize the services offered in the contest, and the overall impact winning will bring to the business and the community. We wish we had three prize packages to award,” commented one of the anonymous Selection Committee Members.
