About the Event

Please call for last minute registrations. 

Our most prestigious event of the year. This Chamber tradition is held at the beautiful grounds of Longwood Gardens and brings together business and community leaders to celebrate the successes in Chester County over the past year. 

This year’s dinner will feature the passing of the gavel from Chairman Michael DeHaven to Chair-Elect Joel Frank. 

We are also proud to announce the recipients of two Distinguished Service Awards:

The CEO of the Year is awarded to a C-Level Executive Leader of a company who has had a significant impact during the year or who has shown steadfast leadership to their company and the community on an ongoing basis. The award will be presented to David Moser, President of DFT, Inc. David is regarded as an astute and reserved businessman who lends careful thought to his comments and whose points always add value to the conversation. He is highly active within the Chester County Chamber, as well as other local organizations. 

The Citizen of the Year is awarded to someone who has taken on a community initiative or has had a major impact on their industry through professional and community involvement. Robert Spatola, of Spatola Wines is this year’s well-deserved recipient. Robert is known for his generous attitude- not only monetarily but with his time, energy, creativity and love. He can be spotted at helping out at Handi-Crafters or handing out birthday gifts to clients and employees.
