Frisco Business Awards Gala

Event Description:

The Frisco Chamber of Commerce honors outstanding businesses, organizations, and citizens at its annual Frisco Number Ones Gala each year. This gala is attended by over 600 of Frisco’s most influential business and community leaders. Nominations for awards are accepted and applications are reviewed and judged by a cross-section of Frisco business professionals that comprised the review committee. In addition to the business awards, the Frisco Chamber President and Chair of the Board each honored a business organization or individual that has made a significant difference to the Frisco Chamber of Commerce during the past year.

This event allows the business community to come together to celebrate each other’s successes, and allows recognition of those businesses that make Frisco number one in so many ways! 

If you have questions regarding the planning and implementation of any of the events, please email Shelby Fawver, Events Manager. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Brian Davis, Director of Membership.
