Each year, the Frisco Chamber of Commerce honors and celebrates local businesses and citizens at an annual awards ceremony, now named the Frisco Number Ones Gala. The gala, in its 34th year, will be held at the Omni Frisco Hotel on February 9, 2018 with the theme “The Artistry of Industry!” Applications and nominations were received from numerous Chamber businesses and entities and were reviewed and judged by a cross-section of Frisco business professionals that comprised the review committee. “This year we had a record number of nominations,” said Tony Felker, President and CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. “With so many outstanding businesses and such a strong business community in Frisco, it is no surprise; however, this made it difficult to narrow the field down to just a few finalists. I applaud all of our nominees as they make Frisco number one in so many ways!” Winners in each category will be announced at the Frisco Number Ones Gala on February 9, 2018. In addition to the business categories listed, awards will be presented to individuals recognizing their contribution as either a service to the community during the past year or for lifetime achievement. The fun-filled evening will begin at 6:00 PM and will include raffles, an elegant multi-course dinner, and an awards ceremony with over 600 of Frisco’s most influential business and community leaders. The Frisco Chamber is pleased to announce that Hall Park is the presenting sponsor of this year’s Frisco Number Ones Gala. CMT Worldwide and Peak Roofing are Gold Sponsors. Tickets and table sponsorships can be purchased at FriscoChamber.com.
